The Affordable Care Act enacted a temporary “Medicaid primary care fee bump” that required states’ Medicaid programs to reimburse health care providers the same rates as Medicare for primary care services for all Medicaid patients during a two-year period, 2013-2014. For dual-eligibles, states’ Medicaid programs were required to reimburse providers the full 20% Medicare coinsurance for primary care services. This study examines the impact of the Medicaid primary care fee bump on the cost and quality of care for dual-eligibles with multiple chronic conditions.
