To better monitor and address potential inequities in beneficiary access to care.
Complement the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission’s ongoing internal work examining how state and federal officials monitor denials and the appeals process to ensure enrollees receive appropriate access to care.
Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission
Mathematica conducted focus groups in eight states to understand the accessibility of the appeals process to beneficiaries, barriers to the appeals process, the type of health beneficiaries receive from Medicaid managed care plans, state Medicaid agencies, and other organizations in pursuing appeals, and changes to policies or procedures that could make the appeals process more accessible. As part of this work, Mathematica is writing a report on the major findings from the focus groups and identify remaining knowledge gaps.
