Implementing the Medicaid Primary Care Rate Increase: A Roadmap for States

The roadmap can help states: (1) understand critical parameters of the increase; (2) identify the operational steps to prepare for and implement the increase and apply for the federal match; and (3) identify potential levers to enhance primary care access and quality. The roadmap is a product of Increasing Primary Care Rates, Maximizing Medicaid Access and Quality, a CHCS initiative made possible through The Commonwealth Fund. CHCS is working with Medicaid stakeholders, including the Medicaid agencies, health plans, physician organizations, and health policy experts, to maximize the long-term impact of the primary care rate increase on health care quality and access.
