Innovations in Medicaid Policy Wednesday, September 11, 2013

On January 1, 2014, Medicaid expansion will take effect as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, expanding coverage to millions of low-income Americans. In preparation, several States have begun to implement changes in Medicaid policies and programs that facilitate enrollment and access to services.

The featured Innovations describe a pay-for-performance program in New York that improved immunization rates and diabetes care, an initiative in Oklahoma that facilitated Medicaid enrollment while reducing operating costs, and an Oregon plan that increased screening and access to care for children at risk for developmental disabilities.

The featured QualityTools include a toolbox for Medicaid and CHIP learning collaboratives, a fact sheet describing dual eligible status and its implications, and a toolkit to improve Medicaid managed care service delivery for youth with serious behavioral health needs.
