Medicaid payments go up for pediatric care in New Jersey

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, January 3, 2008
Doctors who care for poor children in New Jersey are getting their first increase in Medicaid rates in two decades, and reimbursements will more than triple. The increases were possible because the governor  set aside an extra $10 million in state money last summer for Medicaid reimbursements for pediatric healthcare providers in 2008, and it will be matched by $10 million in federal funding.
