Clarification on Medicaid reimbursement

In regard to the E-NEWS sent earlier today regarding Medicaid reimbursement to federally qualified health centers (FQHCs). be advised private dental practices will continue to be paid the current fee-for-service reimbursement methodology.

The FQHCs will be reimbursed for each patient encounter (visit), instead of being reimbursed for each service provided.  FQHCs sought this method of reimbursement through the court.
