The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has released a Request for Information (RFI) on how the Medicaid program can incorporate out-of-state providers in coordinating care for children with certain medically complex conditions under Medicaid. The RFI is intended to help CMS implement a provision of the Medicaid Services Investment and Accountability Act of 2019 that gives states the option to cover Medicaid health home services for children with medically complex conditions who choose to enroll in a health home. In the RFI, CMS seeks information such as how this care is coordinated in emergency and non-emergency situations, financial barriers individuals face in accessing out-of-state provider care, and ways to streamline processes for screening and enrolling out-of-state providers. Comments will be accepted until March 21, 2020; CMS intends to use RFI responses to develop guidance to state Medicaid directors by October 1, 2020.
