Providers in NC to receive rate increase

Beth BowenRALEIGH, N.C. – HME providers in North Carolina will receive a rate increase for 13 products that equates to about $3.2 million more for their bottom lines over an eight-month period. 

Members of ACMESA’s Medicaid and legislative committees and AAHomecare’s payer relations team have lobbied for the increase for two years, following the state’s decision to discontinue a 5% rate increase related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“ACMESA is thankful for the rate increase provided on essential codes on the DME fee schedule,” said Beth Bowen, executive director of ACMESA.  “Our strong relationship with N.C. Medicaid is one we value and has enabled our providers to continue to provide quality DME services to North Carolina Medicaid beneficiaries. ACMESA and AAHomecare will continue to fight in the next legislature to obtain a much needed across the board increase. Now is the time to continue to reach out to our legislators to remind them of the value DME brings to NC Medicaid.”  
The rate increases go into effect on Nov. 1.  Stakeholders expect additional details from N.C. Medicaid soon.
