Medicaid Parity to Federal Legislative Priorities

MCH supports S. 2694, the “Ensuring Access to Primary Care for Women & Children Act.” This legislation would extend the Medicaid parity program for an additional two years through 2016. Low Medicaid reimbursement rates have created significant barriers for Medicaid patients in the healthcare system and this program is a step in the right direction to ensure access to primary care services.
