Medicaid EHR incentive programs

The first week of October featured six more states that launched their Medicaid electronic health record (EHR) incentive programs.

California, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Utah and Vermont can now have eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible hospitals complete their incentive program registration at the state level to receive monetary payments.

EPs who want to sign up for the Medicaid EHR incentive programs are advised to visit their state agency website for participation information, and also the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Basics page on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) website.

As of Oct. 3, 2011, 33 states have launched their Medicaid EHR incentive programs. In addition, 22 states through September have submitted incentive payments to Medicaid EPs and eligible hospitals that have adopted certified EHR technology.
