Proposed Access Monitoring Review Plan
The purpose of this posting is to provide public notice and receive public input on DMMA’s proposed Access Monitoring Review Plan (AMRP).
In regulations published in November 2015, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) required states to evaluate and seek public input on the adequacy of access to care for Medicaid Fee for Service (FFS) recipients. CMS required states to develop and submit by October 1, 2016, a plan to design approaches that demonstrate and monitor access to care by examining the needs of FFS recipients, availability of care and providers, and utilization of services.
The public is invited to review and comment on the proposed plan, which can be found here. Draft 2016 Access Monitoring Review Plan
Comments must be received by 4:30 p.m. August 30, 2016. Comments and input may be submitted in the following ways:
By email: DMMA_PublicHearing@state.de.us
By fax: 302-255-4481 to the attention of Glyne Williams
By written comments sent to:

In response to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) promulgating a rule which for the first time defines the standard of being "community-based," Delaware - and the individuals and families we serve - is committed to the goals of enhancing the quality of home and community-based services (HCBS) and ensuring full access to the benefits of community living.
The Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) is driven by core values that enhance individuals' access to the least-restrictive environments, promotes individual choice, and engages families and significant others. DHSS has and will continue to engage stakeholders, and will continue to facilitate and promote a robust stakeholder process as the State conducts activities toward implementation of the final rule.
Consistent with transparency requirements, the State conducted two public hearings and incorporated public responses into the final submission.
