The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services today published in the Federal Register a request for information on the coordination of care from out-of-state providers for Medicaid-eligible children. The agency seeks to identify best practices for using out-of-state providers to provide care to children with medically complex conditions; determine how care is coordinated for such children when that care is provided by out-of-state providers, including when care is provided in emergency and non-emergency situations; reduce barriers that prevent such children from receiving care from out-of-state providers in a timely fashion; and identify processes for screening and enrolling out-of-state providers in Medicaid, including efforts to streamline such processes for out-of-state providers or to reduce the burden of such processes on them. CMS plans to use the comments on the RFI and issue guidance to state Medicaid directors. CMS will accept comments for 60 days.
