Eligible Professionals Incentive Payments

Eligible Professionals can receive up to $63,750 over six years. Pediatricians who qualify with a 20% Medicaid patient volume receive two-thirds of the maximum incentive payment, totaling $42,500. Pediatricians who qualify with a 30% Medicaid patient volume can receive the full incentive payment.

Eligible Professionals may receive an incentive payment from either Medicaid or Medicare, but not both. A Medicaid Eligible Professional may receive an incentive payment from only one State in a Payment Year.

Eligible Professionals may assign an incentive payment to either themselves or the group practice designated by the pay-to address on their Wisconsin Medicaid provider file (found in the demographics section in the ForwardHealth Portal). Eligible Professionals are responsible for maintaining this information.
