Bill would Require Medicaid to Pay Promptly


Reps. Brian Bilbray (R-Calif.) and Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) have introduced legislation that would require the Medicaid program to reimburse all providers—including nursing facilities, hospitals and community health centers—in a more timely manner.

The bill, known as the Fair Pay to Medicaid Providers Act, would extend to these healthcare providers a provision that requires Medicaid to reimburse 90% of claims to physicians in 30 days and the remainder within 90 days, according to Eshoo's office.

“This is a common-sense bill directed to patients,” Eshoo said in a news release. “Our healthcare professionals and facilities deserve to be reimbursed in a predictable and consistent timeframe in order to provide optimal care to those in need.”
