According to the way that the Affordable Care Act is currently written, federal funding of the enhanced payment to primary care providers serving the Medicaid population will end December 31, 2014. States have an option to extend the payment increase into 2015, but the additional funding would not be provided by the federal government.
As things currently stand, Ohio is not one of the states that elected to keep the enhanced Medicaid payments.
In July of 2014, Sen. Sherrod Brown introduced legislation which would extend the enhanced Medicaid payment through 2016.
We have made our Government Relations Department aware of this pending legislation and will post updates as they become available.
