DOH Receives Approval for “Mandatory” Managed Long-Term Care
From New York State:
DOH has indicated to HANYS that the receipt of CMS’ formal amendment approval now allows DOH to move forward with auto-enrollment of the target population. DOH is partnering with stakeholders, local social services districts, and New York Medicaid Choice to launch the mandatory program, first in New York City, and will continue implementation statewide. Individuals in New York City, who received enrollment outreach letters on July 6, will receive a notice of auto-assignment the first week in October, with an effective enrollment date of November 1. At any point in the process, even after Medicaid enrollees have received their notice of auto-assignment, they may select a plan of their choosing and their enrollment will be effective with the next enrollment cycle.
