Via: New Medicaid Managed-Care Rules Reportedly Give States Much Flexibility

medicaidCMS recently released new rules for Medicaid managed-care, the first revision in 14 years, and the focus is on “flexibility” for states. The article said the Federal government “laid the responsibility of ensuring that some of the country’s poorest residents receive timely, high-quality care to the 39 states and the District of Columbia that contract with private managed-care plans to provide Medicaid services.” Yet, those states require funding, “manpower and some detailed direction to implement the provisions of the sweeping Medicaid managed-care rule.” Some of them are more prepared than others to tackle this problem, which means there could be “disparities in the improvements to healthcare quality and access the regulations seek to achieve.”
