The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is committed to working with states on targeted approaches to ensure Medicaid fee for service (FFS) rates meet federal requirements while minimizing state administrative burden. Today, CMS issued guidance to states to provide clarification and additional policy direction to states on compliance with the Social Security Act (the Act) and federal regulations issued by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Specifically, this letter describes guidance on implementation approaches for the Medicaid access to care FFS requirements found at 42 CFR 447.203(b).
The letter is available online on Medicaid.gov at http://www.medicaid.gov/
