Given the primary role that Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) play in our nation’s health care system, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) has made significant investments in these programs’ information technology and data analytic infrastructure.
Release of Transformed Medicaid Statistical Information System (T-MSIS) data marks CMS’s continued commitment to promoting transparency and accountability in the Medicaid program through seamless data sharing
Welcome to CMS and thanks for joining us today, as we look ahead to 2019 for the Medicare Advantage and Part D programs. It’s a pleasure to be here with you and to provide an update on all that we have been doing to strengthen and improve these important programs for our nation’s seniors and the disabled.
Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a proposed rule (CMS-1672-P) that would update the calendar year (CY) 2018 Medicare payment rates and the wage index for home health agencies (HHAs) serving Medicare beneficiaries.
