    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    The purpose of this article is to provide estimates of the costs of basing Medicaid physician payment levels on the new resource-based Medicare Fee Schedule.

    Two possible policy options are considered : setting all Medicaid physician fees at the Medicare Fee Schedule level and setting only office visit fees at the new Medicare levels.

    Methods

    Data on Medicaid physicians fees, use patterns, and the Medicare Fee Schedule are used to develop state-level estimates of expenditure changes under each option.
