Comments on Medicaid Managed Care Proposed Rule

HCA has submitted comments to the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on a proposed rule that would provide the most significant update to Medicaid managed care rules in more than a decade. The rule covers the delivery of managed long term services and supports (LTSS); quality improvement; program and fiscal integrity; state delivery system reforms; rates to plans; beneficiary experience; and other areas.

HCA’s comments address: the misalignment between federal and state regulations for home care; the need for actuarial soundness of rates by states to managed care plans and rates by plans to home care providers; disenrollment due to home care provider changes; transitions of care; state monitoring requirements; grievances and appeals and aid continuing; provider screening and enrollment; uniform billing; and plan contacts.
