HHS Rescinds Medicaid Regulations, Helping to Ensure Vulnerable Children Have Access to Critical Case Management Services
Jul 17, 2009
On June 29, 2009 the administration rescinded all or parts of three Medicaid regulations including those that would have threatened access to critical case management and targeted case management services for vulnerable children and youth. CLASP was very supportive of the rescission and offered comments.
Allows for appropriate cost allocation for those case management services that constitute and benefit more than one program, recognizing that the effective and efficient administration of both child welfare and Medicaid require case management services.
Eliminate the requirement for a single case manager, acknowledging that individuals needing case management services often have complex medical needs that may be best addressed by more than one individual.
Eliminates unnecessary and inefficient billing mechanisms, allowing service providers to focus on providing services.
