On June 30, ACAP submitted a letter to CMS Administrator Brooks-LaSure to show support, and share concerns for proposed regulation:“Ensuring Access to Medicaid Services”.
Key themes from the comment letter include:
- support of CMS’s proposal that states establish and operate a newly named Medicaid Advisory Committee (MAC) and a Beneficiary Advisory Group (BAG)
- a recommendation that CMS specify that states, rather than plans, should be responsible for overseeing and ensuring appropriate payment allocation for whatever method of demonstrating payment adequacy CMS finalizes.
The letter is linked in its entirety in the sidebar on the right.
