CMS proposes new rules for Medicaid

On Monday, January 16th, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services proposed a new rule addressing issues concerning eligibility notices, process of appeals, notification, medicaid benefits, medicaid cost sharing, and verification of employer-sponsored coverage. The purpose was to help strengthen medicaid, childrens health insurance, and the health marketplace.

HHS said the proposed rule would give states more flexibility when operating their Medicaid programs and sheds light on how consumers will receive coordinated communications on eligibility determinations and how they can submit appeals. You can read the detailed proposal here.
