Quality Strategy for the New York State Medicaid Managed Care Program
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. Pursuant to the Special Terms and Conditions (STCs) of the Federal-State Health Reform Partnership (FSHRP) and Partnership Plan section 1115(a) Demonstrations, the state must revise its Quality Strategy upon any amendments to the waivers or substantial changes to the Medicaid managed care program. The latest revision was in reaction to the April 14th 2014 MRT waiver amendment.
Once approved by CMS, the Quality Strategy will be posted to the Department of Health's website for Medicaid Managed Care. The previously approved Quality Strategy (2012) is currently available.
