Ensuring Access to Primary Care for Women &
Identical Bills Now Pending in Both Chambers
November 18, 2014
(Washington) -Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.) Monday introduced House
legislation, the Ensuring Access to Primary Care for Women
& Children Act (H.R. 5723) to ensure continued access to
vital primary care services. David A. Fleming, MD, MA, MACP,
president of The American College of Physicians (ACP), noted that,
"ACP applauds Rep. Castor's leadership in the House on this key
issue, which will extend current-law payment rates under Medicaid
for certain primary care and immunization services to at least the
level of Medicare through 2016."
Companion legislation to H.R. 5723 is also pending in the
Senate, as introduced by Sens. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Patty
Murray (D-Wash.) in July.
As outlined in a
letter today from ACP in support of H.R. 5723, Dr. Fleming
pointed out "This will help ensure access to vital primary care
services delivered by primary care and related subspecialty
physicians for many of this nation's most vulnerable citizens. It
will ensure sufficient payment for primary care services and
vaccinations, and to the physician specialties and subspecialties
that deliver them, is essential to providing access for the 65
million women, men, adolescents and children enrolled in
This legislation will extend and ensure continued funding of
what is often referred to as the Medicaid Primary Care Pay Parity
Program under current law. It ensures that physicians practicing in
the specialties of family medicine, pediatrics, and internal
medicine as well as related internal medicine and pediatric
subspecialists continue to receive Medicare-level reimbursement
rates for providing primary care and immunization services to
patients enrolled in Medicaid.
This legislation also includes physicians practicing obstetrics
and gynecology as qualified specialists, subject to the eligibility
requirement that at least 60 percent of their Medicaid billings
consist of primary care services as defined under current law.
The American College of Physicians is the
largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest
physician group in the United States. ACP members include 141,000
internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists,
and medical students. Internal medicine physicians are specialists
who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the
diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the
spectrum from health to complex illness. Follow ACP on Twitter and Facebook.
