On Wednesday, May 8, DAFP submitted testimony to the Senate Health, Children & Social Services Committee in support of Senate Bill 199.
SB 199, sponsored by Senator Townsend and Representative Bentz with support from Sens. Hansen, Henry and McDowell and Representatives Baumbach and Brady, ensures adequate spending in primary care. First, by setting Medicare rates as a baseline for primary care reimbursement. This is a short-term fix to stem additional primary care failure and consolidation in Delaware. It also requires that over a period of years that the overall spend of plans into primary care increase gradually to reach the 12% investment mark, but without increasing the total spend so that premiums rise as a result of this reallocation. This legislation extends to individual, group, State employee, and public assistance plans.
