Florida Set to Dole Out $248M in EHR Stimulus Incentives for Next Fiscal Year

Florida's Agency for Health Care Administration is ready to distribute its first HITECH Act incentive payments in September and more than $248 million of the stimulus money during the next fiscal year, according to a Palm Beach Post report.

Physicians in Florida who have already made the transition to electronic health records and show meaningful use can apply for up to $44,000 each over six years and up to $64,000 if they see a high percentage of Medicaid patients, the report said. Hospitals are looking to collect millions.

Roughly 2,000 physicians have already started converting to EHRs, the report said.
