(This amendment provides funding to support an increase in Medicaid physician reimbursement. Payment rates would be increased to 75 percent of Medicare rates (based on the relative value units and the conversion factor, without any adjustment for geographic variation in fees) as of January 2004. This is a recommendation of the Joint Commission on Health Care.)
