MACPAC issues March report to Congress

AHA News Now

The Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission yesterday released its March report to Congress on Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program. The report focuses on Medicaid and CHIP support for safety net hospitals, delivery of care for people with behavioral health conditions, and coverage for low- and moderate-income children. It reviews recommendations from the commission’s report last month on the Medicaid Disproportionate Share Hospital program; efforts to integrate physical and behavioral health; and differences in out-of-pocket costs for children with coverage through exchanges versus separate CHIP coverage.
