The AAFP encourages members to participate in discussions and decisions that promote both high quality care and maintenance of basic essential health services for Medicaid recipients.
Medicaid coverage should include a uniform basic range of services. Medicaid payment for services should be fair and adequate.
The Medicaid program should be revised to include provisions whereby the homeless and medically uninsurable are covered.
The AAFP endorses the principle that peer review systems and utilization review systems will promote uniform quality of care to Medicaid beneficiaries. (1983) (2013 COD)
