The Medicaid and CHIP Payment Access Commission released a report last week urging the federal government to streamline the Medicaid managed care program by giving states more flexibility, providing guidance on telehealth use and implementation, and extending approval and waiver renewal periods from two to five years, among other steps. AHIP said states need a more efficient mechanism for adopting and expanding their Medicaid managed care programs, and the group urges lawmakers "to enact legislation in line with MACPAC's recommendation and build upon the successes of Medicaid managed care."
