Medicaid: Learning More About Infrastructure, Lingo and Coverage and Why it Matters
Wednesday, January 4, 2012
Posted by: Natalia Gromov
Please join NAQC for the second seminar of the 2012 series, Medicaid: Learning More About Infrastructure, Lingo and Coverage and Why it Matters.
Effective implementation of the recent Medicaid guideline that allows quitlines as an administrative activity eligible for a 50% Federal Medicaid matching rate has become a critical component of quitline sustainability efforts. As state health departments gear up their efforts to partner with Medicaid to secure Federal Financial Participation, there is a need to improve understanding of Medicaid specific terminology and the minimum requirements for coverage that affects ALL states. A policy analyst from the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured will join us to share this critical foundation, as well as what is changing due to healthcare reform laws (what is required now, what will be required later and the dates for implementation).
In addition to the federal-level Medicaid discussion, this seminar will highlight the important questions to ask state Medicaid partners in order to ensure a clear understanding of infrastructure and coverage at the state level. One state will share their journey from information-gathering meetings with Medicaid to submitting a successful cost allocation plan.
