CMS Final Rule on Medicaid and CHIP Eligibility, Enrollment, and Renewal

On Thursday, April 11, State Health and Value Strategies hosted a webinar on CMS’ recently released final rule, “Medicaid Program; Streamlining the Medicaid, Children’s Health Insurance Program, and Basic Health Program Application, Eligibility Determination, Enrollment and Renewal Processes.” The expansive final rule largely aligns with the proposed rule with modest modifications and seeks to strengthen existing government-sponsored coverage program eligibility, enrollment, and renewal in an effort to minimize churn; align processes for enrollees; and reduce administrative burden on states. Experts from Manatt Health reviewed key Medicaid and CHIP provisions in the final rule and discussed considerations for state policymakers as they prepare to build upon their current platforms and planning processes to comply with the federal requirements.
