The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) proposed a new rule that would revise Medicaid regulations for Mechanized Claims Processing and Information Retrieval Systems. Specifically, CMS proposes to amend the definition of Mechanized Claims Processing and Information Retrieval Systems to include systems used for eligibility determination, enrollment, and eligibility reporting activities. It proposes to modify its regulations so that the enhanced Federal financial participation (FFP) is available for design, development, and installation or enhancement of eligibility determination systems until December 31, 2015, with enhanced FFP for maintenance and operations available for such systems beyond that date in certain circumstances.
CMS also proposes that all Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMISs) meet certain defined standards and conditions in terms of timeliness, accuracy, efficiency, and integrity and that they achieve high positive levels of consumer experience, acceptance and satisfaction in order to receive enhanced FFP.
