CMS recently proposed a rule to update managed care regulations for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, according to a press release.
The recommended adjustments reflect the growth of managed care — a health care delivery system that organizes cost, utilization and quality to participants enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance markets, according to CMS. Medicaid’s managed care regulations have not been revised since 2003. In addition, the regulations would target broader populations receiving managed care, including seniors and patients with disabilities.
