Expenses should jump for primary care entities that offer Medicaid plans in 2013, as there could be a more dynamic offering of the program, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
There is no specific payment plan, as of yet. However, it could help expand coverage for those who need the plan, MedPage Today reported, citing CMS. This could help rectify any issues with the Affordable Care Act, as some fear that the new rules will encourage some physicians from taking on new Medicaid patients.
"The hope is that these will facilitate the proliferation of delivery systems which really support the practice of integrated care delivery systems," said Cindy Mann, director of the center for Medicaid and CHIP services for CMS, according to the news source.
Consumers who currently hold a Medicaid plan, but are worried about the chances of their costs getting too high, may need to check out various options with affordable health insurance rates. Seeking out health insurance quotes online could help a person find a plan they can better afford.
