State Medicaid Integration Tracker Update Published for July
The National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) has published the July 2015 Edition of the State Medicaid Integration Tracker. NASUAD’s State Medicaid Integration Tracker is a monthly report summarizing changes in each state on Managed Long-Term Services and Supports (MLTSS), dual eligibles demonstration projects for people eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid, and other Medicare-Medicaid Coordination Initiatives. The report also includes updates on state participation in other Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) programs that provide a variety of services to support medical, transportation, and employment needs.
The July report includes several important updates, including the publication of a new report from the California State Auditor examining Medi-Cal; the formation of a new study committee in the Massachusetts Legislature on Medicaid managed care organizations facing financial challenges related to reimbursement rates; and a new proposal in Nevada to modify the state’s Medicaid delivery system to serve aged, blind, and disabled populations.
