2024 Alert – Stop Medicaid Cuts 

Medicaid budget cuts will decrease patient access to healthcare! Email your Baltimore County legislators to ask them to reverse the cuts. Ask them to restore Medicaid E&M payment rates in Maryland. In recent years, Medicaid E&M payments have been in parity or higher than Medicare E&M payments. Lower payments will affect patient access. Use MedChi’s grassroots messaging link below.

Problem and Solution

  • The current Fiscal Year 2025 Budget proposal cuts Medicaid E&M payments.
  • Medicaid enrollment has expanded to over 1.8 million Marylanders.
  • We must maintain payments at the current level in order to recruit and retain physicians who accept Medicaid.
  • Without enough participating physicians, these vulnerable patients will not have access to the essential care they need.

HERE’S WHAT YOU CAN DO: Send a message to your state legislators.
