New York has received approval from CMS to implement the Primary Care Rate Increase (PCRI) for Medicaid.
In order to receive the PCRI, qualified providers must attest that they meet the requirements of the regulation.
Fee for service payments have begun within payment cycle 1872 (July 4, 2013).
Starting September 2013, eMedNY will reprocess claims for dates of service on and after January 1, 2013 at the increased rate to providers who have submitted complete attestations by August 1, 2013.
For attestations received after August 1, 2013, the increased rate will be paid effective the date the attestation is received.
