Reimbursement Equity

Currently, the Department has varying reimbursement rates for the same services when provided in different settings. These differences in reimbursements lead to incentives to provide care in the setting that yields the highest reimbursement. In addition, some providers are guaranteed to be reimbursed the full cost of Medicaid services regardless of whether the care is delivered in a cost effective manner through cost based reimbursement.
