New Article from RAM Technologies, Inc.: “Innovations in Medicaid: How States are Using Medicaid Waivers to Improve Access, Engagement and Health”
RAM Technologies, Inc., the perennial leader in the development of enterprise software for healthcare payers, is pleased to announce the availability of a new report as part of the “Sharing Knowledge to Improve Healthcare Administration” (SKIHA) program. This month, members of the SKIHA program (free registration) are granted complimentary access to the RAM report, Innovations in Medicaid: How States are Using Medicaid Waivers to Improve Access, Engagement and Health.
Amendments to the Social Security Act granted the Secretary of Health and Human Services specific authorities including the ability to waive provisions of Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Plan. These waivers provided states with greater flexibility in how they administer these programs, including the ability to use funds in new ways. States have effectively expanded health care coverage, changed how health care is delivered, added benefits, required cost sharing, and extended coverage during an emergency.
“Medicaid is integral to the health of our nation,” said Christopher P. Minton, Executive Vice President of RAM Technologies, Inc. “It is impossible to imagine life in present day America without it. This safety net program has transformed the healthcare industry, not just for the poor, but for every American. It has driven innovation and improved the delivery of care, and it is imperative that we make every effort possible to ensure its long term survival.”
