GREAT NEWS For MTANJ Members!
After a LONG drought.
an INCREASE IN BLS MEDICAID RATES IS ON THE WAY!!
We have just learned that Logisticare is planning to increase the BLS rate for providers to $100.00 base rate and $2.00 per mile. While this is a significant percentage increase (72%), we recognize that we must continue our efforts to bring equitable rates to the entire industry in order to sustain the work we do.
Medicaid has not increased its rates in nearly two decades, and New Jersey continues to be one of the lowest payors in the nation.
As you are aware, MTANJ, on behalf of its members, meets regularly with Logisticare and senior Medicaid officials on your behalf, and has provided comments on the new RFP for a broker. We are confident that only by continuing this important advocacy can rates, as well as other critical workplace issues, be addressed successfully.
Logisticare will be reaching out to providers to amend the Exhibit B Fee Schedule over the next month.
Thanks go to MTANJ officers and our lobbying team for their work in advancing the interest of Association members.
