March 2013

Among the Commission’s conclusions in this February 2013 letter:

• The Commission is generally supportive of program simplification and thus supports CMS’ efforts in this rule to establish coordinated eligibility and enrollment processes;

• The Commission will recommend in its March 2013 Report to the Congress on Medicaid and CHIP that Congress make 12-month continuous eligibility an explicit statutory option for children in CHIP and adults in Medicaid; and

• The Commission supports making Medicaid and CHIP state plan available electronically.
