Under the ACA, Medicaid has increased its payments to equal the 2013 and 2014 Medicare fee for certain primary codes when billed by an eligible primary care provider, who has submitted a valid attestation to the Department of Social Services. However, the ACA requirement ends with dates of service January 1, 2015 and forward.
The Connecticut General Assembly has appropriated funding within the Medicaid biennial in order to continue increased primary care payments for dates of service beyond December 31, 2014. The Department is establishing a policy for primary care increased payments; this policy will be referred to as the HUSKY Health Primary Care Increased Payments Policy. The Department is also revising the list of codes eligible for an increased payment.
