Webinar Replay: Implementing the Final Medicaid Managed Care Rules

This webinar was held on May 24, 2016. 

How to Drive Compliance and Delivery System Performance for States and Health Plans

The hard work of implementing the new Medicaid managed care regulations will fall squarely on the shoulders of states and health plans. For states, the changes come at a time when Medicaid staff are already stretched thin by budgetary constraints and the impact of the continual state and federal regulatory and innovation projects. Now states must drive and oversee new requirements, including a variety of tighter rules around encounter data quality and submission, provider network adequacy, quality rating systems, provider screenings, and program integrity. Medicaid managed care plans, meanwhile, must step up their operational, administrative, and reporting capabilities to accommodate new state oversight requirements across all aspects of the contract performance.

During this webinar, experts from HMA and CNSI will demonstrate the value of using automated dashboard technology and data analytics to establish a single electronic data and reporting portal between states and Medicaid managed care plans for the submission of data and tracking of performance – creating an efficient and centralized compliance audit trail in real time.
