On January 26, 2023, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services approved California’s request to amend the California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal Section 1115 demonstration. This expert perspective describes the amendment, a centerpiece of which is approval for California Medicaid to provide a targeted set of Medicaid services to youth and adults in state prisons, county jails, and youth correctional facilities for up to 90 days prior to release. By providing re-entry services to Medicaid-enrolled individuals who are incarcerated, California aims to build a bridge to community-based care for justice-involved enrollees, offering them services to stabilize their physical and behavioral health conditions and establishing, prior to release, a re-entry plan for their community-based care.
Reconciliation of Advanced Premium Tax Credits: A Primer for Assisters Webinar
As part of a series on “Helping Consumers Understand the Marketplaces,” Manatt Health Solutions led a webinar reviewing a primer on the reconciliation of advance premium tax credits (APTC), explaining how reconciliation will work when consumers file their taxes, and strategies consumers can use to minimize the risk of repayment. These strategies include accurately projecting household size and income, taking less in a premium tax credit in advance, and promptly reporting income and household changes. The primer includes specific examples that demonstrate options and risks for consumers.
