According to the 2009 HITECH Act, physicians are eligible to receive up to $44,000 in total incentives per physician from Medicare for "Meaningful Use" of a certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) starting in 2011. Physicians reimbursed by Medicaid can receive up to $63,750 starting in 2011 based on state-defined guidelines.
