New York Medicaid Is the Slowest Payor in the Nation

According to a survey conducted by Physicians Practice magazine and athenahealth, Inc., New York Medicaid's claim processing speed is at the bottom of the barrel:

* New York-Medicaid was the slowest payer to medical providers averaging over 111 days to process a claim. New York was not only the slowest payer among Medicaid plans but ranked the lowest among all payers nationally.

The surveyors cite the overall poor performance of Medicaid plans as a major factor in provider reluctance to participate in Medicaid and/or to accept new Medicaid patients.
