What Makes Medicaid, Medicaid? — Consumer Protections and Due Process

Executive Summary

In the third paper in our “What Makes Medicaid, Medicaid,” series, NHeLP attorneys detail the consumer protections and rights of Medicaid beneficiaries. To ensure that beneficiaries have complete “access to quality health care, Medicaid provides important consumer protections and due process rights, many of which are enforceable through legal action,” write NHeLP Managing Attorney of the LA office Kim Lewis and Senior Attorney Wayne Turner. Those protections and rights, however, are in danger because of provisions in the Affordable Care Act repeal bill that would drastically cut Medicaid funding.
