Family Physicians Can Submit Comments to CMS on State Medicaid Reform Plan

Family Physicians Can Submit Comments to CMS on State Medicaid Reform Plan

July 27, 2016

North Carolina's Medicaid reform proposal -- officially called the 1115 Waiver Application -- was formally submitted to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in early June. Family physicians and family medicine professionals interested in submitting public comments on the plan may do so via a simple web-based commenting system provided by CMS.

All comments are anonymous and are immediately posted in the public domain; there are over 90 comments submitted to date. The deadline for commenting is 11:00 PM EST on Wednesday, June 20th. The NCAFP plans to submit comments that will touch upon several core themes previously expressed to DHHS by chapter leaders; a copy of the chapter's comment can be downloaded below.

The link to the commenting system is: https://public.medicaid.gov/connect.ti/public.comments/view?objectId=188...
