New Online Resources Announced To Help California, Other States Upgrade Medicaid Systems
On Monday, acting CMS Administrator Andy Slavitt announced a new online resource to support states upgrading their Medicaid systems. CMS said that nine states have fairly new technology and do not need replacements, while 28 states -- including California -- will require upgrades to their outdated systems. The new online resource will allow officials to review state guidance documents for a new system module certification process and vendors to identify systems that need upgrades.
