CMS solicits state proposals for Medicaid grants
State Medicaid directors can now apply for $150 million in grant funds for fiscal years 2007 and 2008.
The 2005 Deficit Reduction act included $75 million in grant money each for these two years. The grants can be used to implement electronic health records, clinical decision support tools or e-prescribing programs, as well as other purposes.
States have until Sept. 15 to apply for the funds, which will be awarded for both years before this November.
