In response to President Trump’s October 12 executive order (EO), the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services (HHS), Labor (DOL) and Treasury have published proposed rules to expand the availability of health coverage sold through short-term, limited duration insurance (STDLI). The public has until April 23, 2018 to submit comments on these proposed rules; the new standards are slated to be effective 60 days after publication of the final rules.
Coverage Transitions and Value Based Purchasing
Small Group Convening hosted by the Center for Health Care Strategies
This joint meeting, hosted by the State Network and Medicaid Leadership Institute, was held in Boston, MA on April 23-24, 2012. The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) led sessions that ranged from continuity of care during coverage transition to methods for integrated care and reimbursement. The attached slides include: 1) an overview by CHCS of ‘Coverage Transition Models’ highlighting keys to seamlessness and models for care linkages during coverage transitions; and 2) a presentation by Robin Callahan, Deputy Medicaid Director in Massachusetts, describing the Massachusetts Medicaid eligibility system and how the state is approaching continuity. This Small Group Convening expanded on an issue brief prepared by CHCS that analyzes how states have historically dealt with individuals that shift between public subsidy programs and how these experiences can prepare states for transitions between the Medicaid expansion and exchange qualified health plans in 2014.
