Medicaid primary care physicians would see reimbursement increase over the next two years under a rule proposed May 9 by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). As part of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), states would receive more than $11 billion in new federal funding to bolster their Medicaid primary care delivery systems.

Effective for 2013 and 2014, the regulation would bring Medicaid reimbursement more in line with Medicare, as required by the ACA. Increases would apply to primary care services delivered by a physician with a specialty designation of family medicine, general internal medicine, pediatrics and related subspecialists.
