If you’re mired in meaningful use requirements and wondering if there really are payouts, the answer is YES. To date the federal incentive program to encourage use of electronic health records (EHR) has paid out $23,725,293,656. And – YES – your colleagues all across Indiana have received some of those funds.
In total, the program has paid Medicare eligible physicians $5,390,245,282. Medicaid eligible physicians have been paid $2,083,997,788. An Indiana-specific, web-based presentation of EHR progress has been developed using openly available Indiana Medicare and Medicaid meaningful use attestation data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. The report, updated monthly, details payouts by state and county since 2011.
