In a new online summary, APTA breaks down the final and interim final rules recently issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that update regulations to include the new Medicaid coverage groups created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA), simplify eligibility policy for Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program, streamline the eligibility and enrollment processes, and coordinate eligibility procedures with those of the Affordable Insurance Exchanges.
Highlights of the rules, Medicaid Program: Eligibility Changes Under the Affordable Care Act of 2010, can be found on the Summaries of Health Care Reform Rules & Regulations webpage under the heading "Additional Summaries."
Comments on the interim final rule are due May 7. APTA will comment on these provisions as necessary.
