Medicaid services are provided by a range of public and private health care professionals and organizations, the list of which varies from state to state. States have latitude in defining the types and qualifications of providers that may receive Medicaid reimbursement for delivering services. The federal government is deferential to state professional practice acts, which are state statutes and regulations that contain specific licensing requirements, professional standards, scope of practice and prohibited acts, etc. for health care providers.#Medicaid #PrivatePractice
