Posted on Monday, November 12, 2018 1:34 PM
Last week, CMS proposed significant changes to streamline the 2016 managed care regulatory framework. The changes reflect a broader strategy to relieve regulatory burdens; support state flexibility and local leadership; and promote transparency, flexibility, and innovation in care delivery.
“Today’s action fulfills one of my earliest commitments to reset and restore the federal-state relationship, while at the same time modernizing the program to deliver better outcomes for the people we serve,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “I want to thank the state workgroup and the CMS team for their diligent work in analyzing these complex regulations and coming forward with a common-sense approach to right-size our regulatory oversight and let states focus more on delivering quality health care to their beneficiaries.”
