This resource outlines important information regarding the Medicaid FQHC Prospective Payment System. Federal law requires that State Medicaid agencies pay federally-qualified health centers (FQHCs or “health centers”) using a prospective payment system (PPS). This Medicaid FQHC Prospective Payment System Checklist is designed to assist FQHCs and Primary Care Associations (PCAs) in assessing FQHCs’ PPS rates and in pursuing strategies to make the PPS methodology work better.
