Primary Care Rate Increase
Under the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid primary care practitioners may qualify for increased reimbursement at the rate that would be paid for primary care services under Medicare. The qualified providers will be reimbursed at the Medicare rate for dates of service on and after January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2014.
A physician is only eligible if he/she first self-attests to practicing in the designated primary care specialties of Family Medicine, General Internal Medicine or Pediatric Medicine, and is either of the following:
- Board certified in the designated specialties/subspecialties
- Has a 60% paid claim history of both E&M and vaccine administration codes specified in the regulation
The Primary Care Increase Attestation Form has recently been removed. A new form will be posted soon.
