  • Overview of Medicaid financing principles 
  • Summary of proposed CMS financing changes, including to permissible provider taxes, upper payment limit payments and sourcing for the non-federal share 
  • New proposed transparency and reporting requirements for Medicaid providers 
  • Future of supplemental payments in Medicaid
  • Next steps

The Medicaid program is undergoing rapid and significant changes in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our presentation will identify key changes, discuss how they are being implemented, and consider what they mean for Medicaid in the short and long run.   We will focus on: 

  • The Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Rule and its impact on supplemental payments.  While some attention has been diverted from the proposed rule during the current crisis, the rule has not been withdrawn, and would also make fundamental changes to Medicaid if finalized.
  • The impact of the federal coronavirus legislation, including the 6.2% FMAP increase and new Medicaid coverage category for the uninsured.
  • The flexibilities identified by CMS in its COVID-19 Medicaid FAQS, including how the agency’s comments shed light on longstanding Medicaid requirements. 
  • State requests for emergency 1115 waivers, 1135 waivers, and state plan amendments, and what we can learn from how CMS is responding to them.
