Welcome to the South Carolina Medicaid State Level Repository (SLR)
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has implemented, through provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), incentive payments to eligible professionals (EP) and eligible hospitals (EH) participating in Medicare and Medicaid programs that are meaningful users of certified electronic health record (EHR) technology. The incentive payments are not a reimbursement, but are intended to encourage EPs and EHs to adopt, implement, or upgrade (AIU) to certified EHR technology and use it in a meaningful manner.

The South Carolina Medicaid State Level Repository (SLR) is designed for eligible professionals (EP) and eligible hospitals (EH) to attest to meeting the requirements for the S.C. Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program. The S.C. Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is administered by S.C.’s Medicaid agency, the South Carolina Department of Health & Human Services (SCDHHS), Division of Health Information Technology (HIT).

Eligible providers who wish to participate in either the Medicare or Medicaid EHR Incentive Program must first register with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).

Need to register, or modify registration, with the CMS Registration and Attestation System?
Please visit https://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Legislation/EHRIncentivePrograms/RegistrationandAttestation.html

Upon successful registration, the CMS system will provide a unique CMS Registration ID to the provider, and will transmit registration data to the S.C. Medicaid SLR. The SCDHHS Division of HIT will verify the provider’s eligibility to participate (generally within 24-48 hours), and will email confirmation of eligibility to the provider along with information about how to proceed with attestation. After the initial registration, the provider will not need to return to the CMS Registration and Attestation System unless registration information needs to be updated.

Users working on behalf of an eligible provider for registration and/or attestation must have a CMS Identity and Access Management System (I&A) Web user account (User ID/Password), and be associated to the provider’s NPI. In absence of a CMS I&A account, an individual may not act as a surrogate user on behalf of the provider for registration or attestation.
