FL Medicaid Doctors To Get Raise
News article in Health News Florida (WUSF) today. Thanks to our state AANP Rep Gail Sadler for sharing.
"The raise, which brings Medicaid pay up to the level of Medicare for two years, is part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The idea is to lure more doctors into primary care and make it worth their while to care for those insured by Medicaid, the joint state and federal program for the very poor." Many ARNP's in Florida care for Medicaid patients BUT It's difficult to determine just how many who are Medicaid certified are actually caring for patients with this insurance. In our upcoming Annual ARNP Practice Survey we will include this question. Please provide a comment now on this site if you are seeing Meidcaid patients and expect an impact in your practice as a result of the FL Meidcaid HMO changes and ACA? Thanks!
