CMS Unveils New Medicaid Managed Care Regulation
For the first time in more than 20 years, the federal government is introducing major changes in how it regulates Medicaid managed care.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services describes the 1425-page rule as aligning Medicaid managed care with other health insurance programs, updating how states purchase managed care services, and improving beneficiaries’ experience with Medicaid managed care.
