State Resource Center

The purpose of the State Resource Center (SRC) is to centralize access to information about Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)-state relations in an easily accessible format. In addition, this section of the website will house access to Medicaid data and systems information to assist State Medicaid Agencies and researchers with their work related to the Medicaid and CHIP programs.

This is our initial launch of the site, with planned improvements in functionality, collaboration, and data availability over the coming months and years.
