For Immediate Release

Washington, D.C. – Today CMS proposed new Medicaid Managed Care rules, marking the first significant update to the program in more than a decade. While we continue to review the proposed regulations, below is a statement from AHIP Interim CEO Dan Durham:

“This latest proposed guidance ensures that health plans and states have the flexibility to structure their programs and benefits to meet the unique health needs of their enrollees. However, an arbitrary cap on health plans’ administrative costs could undermine many of the critical services – beyond medical care – that make a difference in improving health outcomes for beneficiaries, such as transportation to and from appointments, social services, and more. We continue to review the proposed rule and will be developing recommendations to ensure health plans can continue to provide the high quality, comprehensive care upon which millions depend.”
