The article reports that North Carolina Medicaid has been working with its providers, through professional associations, to solicit ideas for how to avoid cuts to the state's Medicaid program, including rate reductions. In response, providers offered to accept certain rate reductions if Medicaid would get rid of a particular administrative burden. Providers also asked if the state had considered changing its reimbursement methodology, by switching from a per-visit rate to a 15-minute unit of time.
