MPS Joins Appeal on Medicaid

The MPS joined over 40 health care provider organizations in a letter strongly urging Secretary Neall and Governor Hogan to sustain Medicaid provider reimbursement rates at the present level of 94% of Medicare, despite pressures on the state budget.  Proposals had been made to the Board of Public Works to reduce the percentage to 90% of Medicare effective January 1, 2021.  However, in view of the impact of the pandemic on practices, exacerbated health disparities and the safety net role of Medicaid, this cut must be avoided.  Click here to view the letter.
