The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has released a Request for Information (RFI) on the topic of access for people enrolled in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The RFI feedback will be used to identify ways to help ensure that individuals eligible for Medicaid and CHIP can enroll in, maintain coverage, and have equitable access to timely, high-quality, and appropriate health care services and support in all payment and delivery systems, regardless of whether care is delivered through fee-for-service or managed care. This Request for Information (RFI) is one of the first steps CMS is taking to develop its comprehensive access strategy. I attached the Press Release for your convenience.
Interested parties may access the RFI questions and provide comment on Medicaid.gov. The RFI is open for a 60 day public comment period beginning February 17, 2022.
