Staterefor(u)m webinar: States prepare for Medicaid's growth spurt

0 Comments | Posted

The Affordable Care Act sets a new national floor for Medicaid coverage. By 2019, Medicaid is estimated to cover an additional 16 million of the most vulnerable Americans, significantly increasing the shape and size of the program. Getting ready for this growth spurt is largely in the hands of states. On this State Refor(u)m webinar, officials from three states provided a closer look at what states are doing to prepare. They answered questions like: Who is likely to enroll and how did the state make these estimates? How are existing eligibility categories expected to change? How will Medicaid integrate with the insurance exchange? How is Medicaid addressing benchmark plan design and access to services? What are strategies to involve stakeholders in this process?
