CORRECTION: EMR BONUS ONLY AVAILABLE FOR MEDICARE OR MEDICAID

An item in the Sept. 14 EVPGram promoting TMA’s upcoming “Prepare Your Practice for Electronic Medical Records” (EMRs) seminar series incorrectly implied that physicians can earn bonuses from both Medicare and Medicaid for using EMRs. The bonuses apply to one program or the other, not to both. Through Medicare, physicians can earn a bonus of up to $44,000 for “meaningful use” of EMRs through 2015. Medicaid-participating physicians can earn up to $63,750.
