for more information.
Individual Eligible Professional (EP)
A single provider who will enter their data and submit their own CMS EHR funding application.

Group Administrator (Group)
A representative for a group or clinic who will enter data for the group and enter data on behalf of individual providers associated with the group/clinic.
Under the rules of the program, Groups and Clinics can use group volumes to determine eligibility for all providers associated with the group/clinic. In order to use the group volumes, all practitioners within the group must agree to use the group volumes to determine Medicaid patient volumes and eligibility to participate in the program. If one provider in the group/clinic chooses to use individual patient volumes rather than the group volumes, all other providers in the group must also use individual patient volumes.
Before starting the entry process, you should work with the providers in your group to get agreement to use the group Medicaid volumes before you start the process of entering information in the system. This will help make the process of entering information for your group go more smoothly.
Group Administrators (Groups)
Groups may demonstrate 30% Medicaid patient volumes for a representative 90-day period in the previous calendar year. Group volumes must include all practitioners in the group to determine eligibility.
Patient volumes are based on unique patient encounters per day for the 90-day period. In certain circumstances, you may also be able to count Medically Needy patient volumes to help you meet the eligibility requirements. You can also count patients seen in different states if you practice in multiple states.
Your patient volume information must come from an auditable data source, so you must be able to provide documentation that supports your volumes if requested.
