What is the "Ensuring Access to Primary Care for Women & Children Act?"
- S. 737/H.R.2253, the "Ensuring Access to Primary Care for Women & Children Act" requires that Medicaid payment for certain primary care services rendered by specified providers, including primary care physicians, OB/GYNs, CNMs, NPs and PAs would be not less than those made under the Medicare program for a period of two years.
- In 2013 and 2014, increased primary care payments under Medicaid had been available, but only to a subset of primary care physicians who could attest that at least 60 percent of the Medicaid services they rendered consisted of the specified primary care services.
