Medicaid and CHIP Managed Care Final Rule
On April 25, 2016, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) put on display at the Federal Register the Medicaid and CHIP Managed Care Final Rule, which aligns key rules with those of other health insurance coverage programs, modernizes how states purchase managed care for beneficiaries, and strengthens the consumer experience and key consumer protections. Summary fact sheets are available. This final rule is the first major update to Medicaid and CHIP managed care regulations in more than a decade.
