Pennsylvania and the state of Washington recently launched their Medicaid electronic health records meaningful use incentive programs, the 16th and 17th states to do so, but the first since May 2.

Fourteen out of the first 15 states live on the program have issued meaningful use incentive payments, double the number in early May. Most states plan to roll out their Medicaid MU programs during 2011; some are likely to not be ready until early 2012.

In addition to Pennsylvania and Washington, other states that have their meaningful use programs in operation include Alabama, Alaska, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
