CMS Issues Updated Medicaid FAQs

Share this page

Late last week the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) updated its Medicaid FAQs document, previously issued in April. The FAQ addresses many emergency waiver provisions, and of particular interest, treatment of retainer funds, and other pandemic-related federal fiscal relief. The section relevant to those issues begins on page 23, but readers might find reading the entire document beneficial to understand current changes to Medicaid during the pandemic.
