Hospital-based doctors targeted for Medicaid rate cut
KeepMEcurrent.com, January 17, 2008
The Department of Health and Human Services is seeking cuts to the Medicaid rate paid to doctors in hospital-based practices, and the rate reduction appears to affect about 43 percent of all physicians in Maine. Members of the Maine Hospital Association say that the irony is any doctors in private practice won't take new Medicaid patients because their reimbursement is so low, and now the state is about to penalize the hospital-based physicians practices that do see them.
