The Medicaid Pay Parity program increased Medicaid provider reimbursement to match Medicare provider reimbursement, helping states expand Medicaid access after Obamacare’s enactment. Restoring this program will help states’ Medicaid programs pay healthcare providers.
Many states have already extended Medicaid pay parity of their own accord, making this bill unnecessary. States that haven’t done so had plenty of time to expand Medicaid when the federal government would’ve helped offset more of the cost.
