Quality Strategy for the New York State Medicaid Managed Care Program

As part of the Special Terms and Conditions (STCs) for the New York's Federal-State Health Reform Partnership (FSHRP) and Partnership Plan section 1115(a) Demonstrations, the state is required to maintain a Quality Strategy for all Medicaid Managed Care Programs. Any updates, amendments, or waivers to the FSHRP or Partnership Plan require revision of the Quality Strategy to incorporate changes. The Quality Strategy is also assessed every three years using assurance reports, surveys, and findings. Changes in the Quality Strategy are made available for public and stakeholder comment. On July 14th, 2014, New York State submitted a revised Quality Strategy for the New York State Medicaid Managed Care Program to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for review and approval. The latest version of the Quality Strategy for New York State Medicaid Manage Care Program was approved by Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services on December 24, 2014.
