Federal officials unveil long-awaited overhaul of Medicaid managed care

May 26, 2015

The federal government unveiled a long-awaited regulatory package that sets national standards for managed care under Medicaid, marking the biggest changes to the growing program in more than a decade. The rule contains instructions about what state Medicaid programs must do when hiring private health plans to handle long-term care for the elderly and disabled - also known as managed care. The CMS is proposing that Medicaid managed care groups align their standards with those in the private marketplace to create more uniform practices across states.
