  • Letter to CMS on Extending Enhanced Medicaid Rates to Subspecialists

    Increased Medicaid Payment Rates:  HIVMA supported CMS’ proposal to extend enhanced Medicaid rates for primary care services to subspecialists. The increase was included in the Affordable Care Act and is for 2013 and 2014. 

    The notice of proposed rulemaking regarding payments for primary care providers in 2013 and 2014 is of great import to HIV-infected patients and their medical providers. The Medicaid program is the largest federal funder of HIV care covering nearly 50% of people with HIV infection who are in care, and many of our members’ patients rely on Medicaid for their health care coverage. While we strongly support expanding access to Medicaid coverage, we are concerned about the ability of HIV providers who disproportionately care for HIV-infected patients to maintain high quality, comprehensive programs under the current Medicaid payment rates.
