Remember Medicaid Expansion

09 Jul 2012 10:26 AM | Anonymous
The individual mandate of the Affordable Care Act was just part of the Supreme Court's ruling. The other part, the one that will impact many of our therapy practice members, is the expansion of Medicaid coverage by the states. In Florida, Gov Scott is fighting against it while the state legislature is working on a "Plan B." According to research, there are three options: a state-based exchange, a state partnership exchange in which the federal government operates the exchange but the state retains some regulatory functions, or a federal facilitated exchange in which the feds control virtually all aspects.

This leaves therapeutic practices that are Medicaid providers uncertain about the future of this source of revenue. The Alliance for Pediatric Therapies will continue to provide information regarding this important topic as it becomes available.
