Medicaid Attestation Update



PI Attestation- March 31, 2019

Representative Period for 2018 Attestations:

  • Option 1 - 3-month period from the prior calendar year (This will allow a provider to attest to any 3-month period from calendar year 2017 if attesting to PY 2018)
  • Option 2 - 3-month period from the 12 months prior to the date of submission. (This option is based off of the date of submission so the period in which the provider can use will change based on the day he/she attests). As an additional note, the date range the provider uses for the representative period must start on the first day of the month.

(Providers may not use the same representative period used on a previous attestation)



Documents required for Medicaid PI Attestations.

As you know the Medicaid State Level Registry has opened for attestations for 2018 PI. As in the past, you will be required to upload documentation to the SLR. The new link to access Alabama’s MU State Level Registry is https://alslr.thinkhts.com. Below is a list of documents that we suggest on uploading when attesting.

Required Documentation Uploads for Eligible Professions:

  • Required by Alabama Medicaid
  • Suggested by MMCS to also be uploaded

These are the items required to attest for Medicaid Meaningful Use.

All documents must be in PDF, Word or Excel format - these are the only formats the SLR will accept for upload.

Once you have this checklist complete and all documents saved in your "MU 2018" file (electronically on your computer desktop), we can schedule your attestation appointment. Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions!
