National Core Indicators recommended as a LTSS measure within the 2019-20 Medicaid Adult CORE Measure Set
May 15th, 2019
Annually, CMCS convenes a workgroup consisting of experts in the Medicaid field at large, including several present and former state Medicaid Agency Directors, health care plans, advocates and hospital system representatives. Long Term services and supports is a service category that has proved challenging for Medicaid measure development for the past few years. It is a significant accomplishment for NCI to be among the earliest measures recommended by this esteemed group for inclusion in the Medicaid Adult Core Measure set. Inclusion requires that a minimum of two-thirds of the workgroup vote in favor; NCI received 75% of the workgroup’s support.
This Adult Core Measures Workgroup link will provide you with information on the workgroup’s process and documents in support of their proceedings.
And, here is a link to the CMCS Adult Core Measure Set webpage. We do not anticipate this will be updated for the 2019-20 Fiscal Year until sometime after August 1.
