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.
Marketplace Enrollee Survey Item Matrix – Sample Questions
State Health Access Data Assistance Center
As those interested in conducting surveys to measure the public’s participation and experience in health insurance marketplaces under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) continue to investigate the most effective ways of doing so, access to questions utilized in previously conducted surveys will be very useful. The Marketplace Enrollee Survey Item Matrix (MESIM) was developed by the State Health Access Data Assistance Center (SHADAC) in order to gather these questions in one convenient document. The MESIM is an Excel file with sort and filter functions that allow users to browse or search for pre-existing survey questions related to marketplace use and enrollment. The 246 included questions are drawn from various state, federal, and private surveys, and are organized by domain. The domains include access and provider supply, application pathway, barriers to care, coverage type, health coverage literacy, motivation to enroll, perceptions of quality/satisfaction, reasons for transitions/motivation to enroll, and reasons for uninsurance/intent to enroll among the uninsured.
