State Health Watch;Jun2010, Vol. 17 Issue 6, p8
The article presents information on improving access to Medicaid providers with the expanded health program. More provider participation is expected since reimbursement for certain primary care services that will be increased to Medicare rates will be fully funded by the federal government. The providers will also increase capacity to expand their work in consideration of the substantial increases in funding for community health centers from the stimulus package and health reform legislation.
