New Technical Assistance Center for States on Medicaid Managed Care
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is pleased to announce the new Medicaid Managed Care Technical Assistance Center on Medicaid.gov. In collaboration with Mathematica Policy Research, Centers for Health Care Strategies, Manatt Health Solutions, and the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), CMS will provide individualized technical assistance to the states on managed care program operations, including planning and procurement, benefit design and serving the needs of complex populations, access and quality, and the use of data for program oversight and management. The Medicaid Managed Care Technical Assistance Center is part of CMS’s larger efforts to provide comprehensive information and guidance on Medicaid managed care program operations.
In the coming months, the managed care content on Medicaid.gov will include enhanced state profiles, a map depicting managed care penetration, and new issue briefs and toolkits.
