Verma Speaks at Medicaid Managed Care Summit

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator Seema Verma recently addressed the Medicaid Managed Care Summit, which was held in Washington, D.C.

Ms. Verma’s speech focused on four major areas:

  • Empowering states to function as laboratories for innovation by giving them the flexibility to introduce changes that work best for their own citizens.
  • Developing Medicaid and CHIP scorecards that present data on health outcomes, quality metrics, and CMS’s administrative performance.
  • Improving Medicaid program integrity, including through “…targeted audits to ensure that provider claims for actual health care spending match what the [Medicaid managed care] health plans are reporting financially.”
  • Strengthening CMS’s use of data in Medicaid oversight.
