Building Safety Net Billing Capacity: State Support for a Solid Foundation

View Slides Here

Safety net providers will need to expand their capacity to participate in Medicaid and Qualified Health Plans (QHPs) when many of their patients gain insurance coverage in 2014. This webinar will discuss concrete ways that states can facilitate safety net provider participation in Medicaid and QHPs in order to serve newly insured and remaining uninsured populations. Speakers from Maryland and Texas will share examples of their work. This webinar is funded through NASHP’s NOSLO Cooperative Agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration.
