Medicaid Pay Parity Nears Expiration – ASH Works with ACP to Extend
the passage of the ACA, specialists in internal medicine—including hematologists—have
been eligible for increased Medicaid payment rates. The ACA, however, limited this increase in
payment to 2013 and 1014, and the rates will soon revert to their former levels
without further legislation. ASH has
worked with the American College of Physicians and other stakeholders to
support legislation that would extend this payment parity, and has recently
submitted a letter to further show support.
