NHeLP Comments on Medicaid Program; Increased Federal Medical Assistance Percent

Executive Summary

NHeLP believes HHS? proposed rule is well designed to ensure states are able to receive the enhanced matching funds required by the ACA for newly eligible enrollees. We commend HHS for ensuring that enhanced FMAP funding is available, as required by the ACA, for a wide array of individuals who, despite having income below the MAGI converted thresholds, would not have been enrolled in full benefits coverage due to enrollment caps, waiting lists, or enrollment in only partial benefit coverage. However, we have several recommendations to improve the regulation for vulnerable individuals.
