Proposed Medicaid Rate Cut Gets Media Attention

Today’s issue of the Business Journal of the Greater Triad Area includes a story about the proposed additional cut to the physician fee schedule, despite Congressional action to provide federal dollars to help ease the budget crunch for North Carolina’s Medicaid program. Reporter Steve Ivey talked with NCMS EVP, CEO Robert Seligson earlier this week to learn more about the physician perspective and the impact the proposed cut could have. See last week’s Bulletin article, Proposed Additional Medicaid Cut Unacceptable: Take Action Now.

As we reported last week, the proposed cut is completely unacceptable.  Please review this letter sent to the Governor objecting to the new rate cut.  It is our hope that you will review this letter, make appropriate changes to identify yourself, and mail your own letter as soon as possible.
