That`s where the problem lies, relying on you who accept Medicare and Medicaid to fund even part of the ACA, we accept you as a health care provider, Medicare and Medicaid. Think about it logically, we`re putting more people into a system (by expanding Medicaid), more people are going to rely on Medicare and Medicaid than their medical insurance, but we`re encouraging them to accept providers FEWER, Medicaid and Medicare. It`s like we don`t care what happens to people when we give them insurance. The ACA`s goal appears to be to make more policyholders; instead of having the goal of providing health care to everyone. If you are a health care provider and you make the business decision to accept Medicare or Medicaid, you agree to treat certain headaches. Low reimbursement rates and more rules than you can possibly count make medicare and Medicaid acceptance a scary experience. Blame some audits before and after payment verification, some incompetent contractors, and deal with the government, in general, and you have a terrible trifecta on back. Nothing in this agreement creates in the supplier a right of ownership or liberty when continuing to participate in a divisional program in North Carolina. SB 744 is still not a law.
It takes both the House of Representatives and the Senate to pass the legislation, and the governor must sign the bill. So we have a long way to go. We need the approval of the right and left wings. By the implementation of this agreement, the supplier does not waive or alter the procedural or substantive rights it may have in accordance with the supervisory authority regarding its participation in the divisional programs. In the event of an objection between a provision of this agreement and a current or future provision of the supervisory authority, the supervisory authority is applicable and the terms of that agreement are deemed amended to satisfy the supervisory authority. In the case of a lawsuit or administrative petition related to this agreement, the jurisdiction of Wake County, North Carolina, is appropriate.
