    NJ Medicaid Increases Payments for Specific Preventative, Primary and Postpartum Care Codes

    By: Amanda Shiber on Feb 01, 2016

    MSNJ advocated for this increase, which was announced a year ago by Governor Christie and included in the 2016 State Budget appropriation for Medicaid. We applaud his commitment to our physicians, who receive among the lowest Medicaid rates in the nation. The Department of Human Services, Division of Medical Assistance & Health Services (DMAHS) announced in December that there would be an increase in payments for specific preventative, primary and postpartum care codes billed by physicians. DMAHS recently released a list of codes affected and their increased payment amounts. These rates apply to fee-for-service claims only. The Medicaid managed care organizations may employ their own methodologies for distributing funds. Physicians providing these services are urged to contact the Medicaid MCOs they participate with for further information. Read more in DMAHS' presentation on the program.
