Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services: Medicaid Program; Federal Funding for Medicaid Eligibility Determination and Enrollment Activities
GAO-11-594R: May 2, 2011
GAO reviewed the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' (CMS) new rule on the Medicaid Program--federal funding for eligibility determination and enrollment activities. GAO found that (1) the final rule revises Medicaid regulations for Mechanized Claims Processing and Information Retrieval Systems. The final rule also modifies CMS's regulations so that the enhanced federal financial participation is available for design, development, and installation or enhancement of eligibility determination systems until December 31, 2015; and (2) CMS complied with applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
