If you are a primary care physician who treats Medicaid patients, you could be eligible for a pay increase, as part of the Affordable Care Act. State Medicaid programs are required to pay for select primary care services and vaccine administration at rates equal to Medicare for 2013 and 2014.

To qualify for the payment increase, however, you must complete and file a self-attestation form created by Indiana Medicaid. Visit here for the form and more details.

Not sure if you qualify? The increase applies to primary care services provided by physicians in family practice, general internal medicine and pediatrics -- and subspecialties within these specialty designations recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS), American Osteopathic Association (AOA) or American Board of Physician Specialties (ABPS).

If you are still uncertain, see the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services website.
