HHS Helps States Develop, Upgrade Medicaid IT Systems

November 4, 2010

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced two steps to help states assure a simple and seamless enrollment experience for consumers who qualify for Medicaid or who are shopping for health insurance in the exchanges under the Affordable Care Act.

First, HHS proposed new federal funding for all states to streamline and upgrade their Medicaid eligibility systems in preparation for the changes resulting from the Affordable Care Act in 2014. Second, HHS announced guidance to help states design and implement IT needed to establish exchanges.

These systems will help enroll people who qualify for Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), tax credits or cost-sharing reductions available through the Affordable Care Act.
