Advocacy on Medicaid Reimbursement Rates

The MPS joined over 40 other medical organizations in a letter calling on Maryland Health Secretary Dennis Schrader to fund Medicaid reimbursement rates at parity with Medicare in the FY23 budget.  Supporting factors include the significant increase in Medicaid rolls during the pandemic, improving access to address health disparities, and the financial impact of the pandemic on practices.  The organizations strongly urge the Secretary and the Governor to restore E&M code reimbursement rates to 100% parity with Medicare rates.
