Health Care Community Comments on Medicaid Provider Agreement

The North Carolina Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) recently sought feedback from provider representatives about concerns over the new Medicaid provider agreement.  The North Carolina Medical Society in coordination with the North Carolina Hospital Association, North Carolina Healthcare Facilities Association and the North Carolina Association of Non-Profit Homes for the Aging has submitted a written proposal of suggested changes to the agreement that can be viewed here.  The NCMS will continue to provide updates on the provider agreement in the Bulletin and on the NCMS website.

The fact that procedures and consultation fees were singled out for a 9% cut are particularly costly to my practice, and affect the ability to sustain my business, which employs seven individuals from this community that currently has over 15% unemployment.

    This issue needs to be corrected immediately!
