Primary Docs Can Get Medicaid Pay Raise

The Affordable Care Act calls for selected primary care providers to receive an increase in their Medicaid fees during calendar years 2013 and 2014.

The pay raise, which seeks to bring Medicaid fees to the same level as Medicare rates, is intended to induce more primary care providers to serve Medicaid patients in anticipation of the increase in Medicaid enrollment expected when the Affordable Care Act takes full effect.

Eligible providers must complete a form attesting to their eligibility for the pay raise and the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare has issued the form and instructions for completing it.  Find both the form and the instructions hereHealth Benefits Claim Form.
