The Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy (FCFEP), in addition to a number of other state advocates, submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) regarding the Agency for Health Care Administration's (AHCA) State Plan Amendment request to limit Medicaid benefits for non-pregnant adults. Should CMS approve the Amendment, benefits would be reduced to: (1) two “general physician” visits per month; (2) six hospital emergency room visits per year; and (3) three home health visits per year (reduced from four). The advocates requested that CMS reject these proposed caps due to the AHCA’s minimal and flawed impact analysis, as well as “vague” and “unjustifiable” rationale. Florida CHAIN was featured in an article
regarding the comments.
