Implementing the Medicaid Primary Care Rate Increase: A Roadmap for States

Under the Affordable Care Act, between 16 million and 20 million more Americans will become eligible for Medicaid, starting in 2014. To help meet this demand, the reform law requires state Medicaid agencies to increase primary care provider reimbursement to the level of Medicare rates in 2013 and 2014 and provides federal funding to cover the additional cost. With Commonwealth Fund support, the Center for Health Care Strategies has created a guide, Implementing Medicaid Primary Care Rate Increase: A Roadmap for States, outlining key implementation and planning activities that states can undertake now to prepare for these changes.
