nder health reform, millions of Americans will be eligible to enroll in Medicaid in 2014. To prepare for this new population, it is critical that Medicaid stakeholders develop a better understanding of these individuals and their care needs. The newly eligible population will include a significant number of individuals with urgent and complex health care needs, who are likely to shift between subsidy programs over time, including health plans in newly created Health Insurance Exchanges. Coordination of benefits, eligibility and enrollment, and contracting and oversight among Medicaid and commercial payers will be essential to ensuring continuity of high-quality care for these individuals.
The Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS), through support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's State Health Reform Assistance Network and additional funders, has collected and created a number of tools and resources to help states design programs to address the needs of the Medicaid expansion population. This online toolkit shares these resources, including reports, briefs, case studies, and presentations, as well as links to a variety of state and plan materials. Content will be updated regularly.
