The Medicaid Pediatric Primary Care Rate Supplement program is live. This program will provide monthly payments to pediatric primary care providers based on the number of RI Medicaid-covered children served by the practice, and awarded upon demonstration of performance improvement on a standardized measure of primary care access. Through the Medicaid program, the Executive Office of Health and Human Services is proud to offer children a comprehensive Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment benefit, and wants to ensure their pediatric partners are able to overcome the ongoing challenges COVID-19 has presented to provide continued access to these critical and time-sensitive services. The application deadline is September 10. Program guidance, application questions, and legal agreements are all available here.
