The following information is one part of POSP's Program Guidelines.
Please reference the complete guidelines as needed.
- Physicians currently receiving VCUR 2006 funding remain
eligible for invoice-based reimbursement to the current level of
funding of $740 per month until March 31,
- The clinic must use an EMR from a vendor that has been accepted
by POSP to be a VCUR 2006 EMR for the purpose of funding.

eligible items (see VCUR 2006 Eligible
- Physicians may submit invoices for reimbursement of failing and
obsolete eligible hardware until 4:30 p.m., August 15,
2013. POSP will amortize the amount over a 12-month period
(April 2013 to March 2014). Reimbursements will be within the cap
of the $740 monthly maximum allowable amount. Invoices received for
hardware purchases after August 15, 2013 will not
be eligible for reimbursement.
- POSP will reimburse each eligible physician in the clinic for
70% of the monthly recurring costs up to a maximum of $740
(including GST) in any given month.
- To receive reimbursement, the clinic must submit a monthly VCUR 2006 Reimbursement

and pay out the estimated amount of eligible costs for the
remainder of the year.
- VCUR 2006 funding will end when the physician achieves
Milestone 3 (Go-Live) with a VCUR 2008 EMR solution from a QSP. If
the physician's contract with a QSP is terminated due to a material
breach of the agreement on the part of the QSP, the physician may
reapply for VCUR 2006 funding if the physician returns to their
VCUR 2006 EMR. POSP will reinstate VCUR 2006 funding upon being
notified that a material breach has occurred.
- POSP will cease VCUR 2006 funding if a physician switches from
their current VCUR 2006 EMR to a different VCUR 2006 EMR product in
the same clinic. If a physician's VCUR 2006 EMR vendor is bought by
another EMR vendor and the clinic implements a different EMR
product, POSP funding will cease.
- Physicians who join a POSP-funded clinic using a VCUR 2006 EMR
may receive VCUR 2006 funding under the following conditions:
- The physician must notify POSP and will be placed on the
waiting list to be addressed on a first-come, first-served basis if
funding and deployment capacity become available.
- If the physician's turn in the waiting list comes up prior to
the date of movement, the physician will be put on hold and POSP
will follow up at the scheduled move date. If the physician is
ready to move, POSP will determine if budget is available and
transfer the physician's eligibility to the new clinic. If the
physician is not ready to move, they will stay on hold and the
physician must contact POSP when they are ready to move.
- On October 15, 2013, all remaining movements
on the waiting list will be processed if funding is available.

- Physicians who join or open a clinic that is not currently

clinic. The physician may apply to receive VCUR 2008 funding,
subject to the requirements for funding.
