Welcome to the South Carolina Medicaid State Level Repository (SLR).

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 Records (EHR) Incentive Program. First you must register with the CMS Registration and Attestation System at https://ehrincentives.cms.gov/hitech/login.action. During the registration process with CMS, you will receive a CMS Registration ID. After 24 hours of successfully registering at CMS, you should be able to return to this site to complete your attestation. If you do not know your CMS Registration ID, please return to your CMS registration to retrieve that ID. The CMS EHR Information Center is available to assist you with questions about your CMS registration: (888) 734-6433.

In April 2011, CMS implemented functionality that allows an EP or EH to designate a third party to register and attest on behalf of the EP or EH. To do so, users working on behalf of an EP or EH must have an 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 EP or EH (e.g., a practice manager may not register and attest on an EP's behalf in the SLR in the absence of a CMS I&A account). To establish an I&A account, please return to the CMS Registration and Attestation System. For assistance, please call the CMS EHR Information Center: (888) 734-6433.
