Are You Ready for HHS's Final Rule on Medicaid Expansion?

HHS's final rule on Medicaid expansion was released on Friday, March 16, 2012. Based in part on feedback from more than 800 comments, the 268 page document provides tactical insight into managing the newly eligible population (most non-disabled adults under 65 up to 133% FPL) and simplifies the eligibility categories into 4 primary groups: children, pregnant women, parents, and the new adult group. It also seeks to modernize eligibility verification rules and ensure coordination across Medicaid, CHIP and Exchanges.
