NACHC Issue Brief on Medicaid Eligibility and Exchange Final Rules

NACHC has prepared an Issue Brief on the new Medicaid eligibility expansion regulations and the Exchange/Qualified Health Plan regulations that HHS finalized last month.  We have focus mainly on those rules that directly relate to FQHC services, contracting with FQHCs, and payment to FQHCs.  There are many other sections and provisions in both sets of rules that will directly or indirectly impact FQHCs and their patients and we have noted in this Issue Brief several papers or reviews that cover these broader topics.  No doubt, there will be many more to follow in the upcoming weeks and months.  If you have questions or comments on this Issue Brief, please call or email Roger Schwartz or Susan Sumrell at NACHC.
