CMS Proposes Rule to Strengthen Managed Care for Medicaid and CHIP Enrollees

On Tuesday, May 26, 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed to modernize Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) managed care regulations to update the programs’ rules and strengthen the delivery of quality care for beneficiaries.  This proposed rule is the first major update to Medicaid and CHIP managed care regulations in more than a decade. It would improve beneficiary communications and access, provide new program integrity tools, support state efforts to deliver higher quality care in a cost-effective way, and better align Medicaid and CHIP managed care rules and practices with other sources of health insurance coverage.  Overall, this proposed rule supports the agency’s mission of better care, smarter spending, and healthier people.

The proposed rule is available to view through the Federal Register The deadline to submit comments is July 27, 2015.

For more information, visit Medicaid.gov  or CMS.gov for the Media Room Press Release.
