    The Agency for Health Care Administration announces a public meeting to which all persons are invited.

    DATE AND TIME: April 19, 2016, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

    GENERAL SUBJECT MATTER TO BE CONSIDERED: The Agency for Health Care Administration is hosting a public meeting regarding program parameters and a monitoring plan for Managed Medical Assistance (MMA) Physician Compensation.

    As part of the Statewide Medicaid Managed Care (SMMC) authorizing statute, provisions were put in place to encourage plans to increase compensation for physicians using funds achieved through savings from effective care management. Specifically:

    409.967 (2)(a) Physician compensation.—Managed care plans are expected to coordinate care, manage chronic disease, and prevent the need for more costly services. Effective care management should enable plans to redirect available resources and increase compensation for physicians. Plans achieve this performance standard when physician payment rates equal or exceed Medicare rates for similar services. The agency may impose fines or other sanctions on a plan that fails to meet this performance standard after 2 years of continuous operation.

    You can access information and details about the MMA Physician Compensation public meeting through our website, http://ahca.myflorida.com/medicaid/statewide_mc/mma_physician_incentive.shtml.
