APTA has reviewed the final rule on Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Programs (CHIP) that was released July 5 as a supplement to the final rule on health care exchanges. Among other things, under this rule CMS clarifies that any individuals eligible to enroll in Alternative Benefit Plans (ABPs) must be provided the 10 mandatory benefits that the Accountable Care Act deemed "essential health benefits," one of which includes rehabilitative and habilitative services.
A summary of the ruling is available to members on the APTA website on both the Medicaid and the Health Insurance Exchanges webpage.
