Simplified But Not Simple: Tackling Health Reform's Eligibility and Enrollment Challenge

Meeting Description:

Improving enrollment and eligibility systems is a heavy lift, but across the nation, states are developing a vision to advance efficiencies in their processes. State strategies will be varied, but the decision points are the same. How do you determine eligibility using a MAGI methodology and set eligibility system specifications to accommodate new rules? Who is in charge of eligibility decisions – Medicaid or the Exchange; states or counties?  How do you work across programs to enable electronic data exchange to determine eligibility?


In the almost two years since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, the vision for a simplified, seamless eligibility and enrollment system across Medicaid, CHIP, exchanges and basic health program has been made clear. Yet, the complexities that come with simplification have also become apparent.  Even as states await final proposed rules, many are moving forward in search of solutions.


This webinar will size up state progress on updating eligibility systems and profile the strategies of three early adopters. Presenters will help states identify key decision points and how to get started on tackling these challenges.


Has your state begun to develop new eligibility policies, systems and processes? Don’t let that work go uncounted! Submit documents and comments that show your state’s progress, and webinar presenter Alan Weil may highlight your work on the webinar.  Start by finding your state here!
