2013 Primary Care Physician Rate Increase

In accordance with the Affordable Care Act (ACA), primary care physicians will be eligible to receive increased Medicaid reimbursements for primary care services provided to Medicaid eligible individuals. However, in order to receive the increased fees, physicians must self-attest to being a primary care provider practice in the area of pediatric medicine, family medicine or internal medicine, or have a sub-specialty within one of those three areas of practice that is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties, the American Board of Physician Specialties or the American Osteopathic Association. The application process began on Jan. 1, 2013.

Physicians must request the reimbursement by self-attesting that they are an eligible provider by applying through the MITS portal on Ohio Medicaidís website. In order to register, applying physicians must have a current MITS account with an active login and PIN. Physicians can access the MITS portal by clicking here. Physicians who do not have a MITS account can sign up for one by clicking here.
