ANCOR’s Comments on the Proposed Ensuring Access to Medicaid Services Rule

Share this page

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a notice of proposed rulemaking, Ensuring Access to Medicaid Services on May 3rd, 2023, which seeks to improve access to care and better address health equity issues in the Medicaid program.

Several provisions of the proposed rulemaking present promising opportunities to improve quality, transparency and consistency. At the same time, one proposed provision in particular risks constraining access to home- and community-based services, rather than improving it.
