To ensure that Medicaid 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. In this paper for our “What Makes Medicaid, Medicaid,” series, NHeLP attorneys detail the consumer protections and rights of Medicaid beneficiaries and how congressional proposals to cut Medicaid could negatively impact those rights.
For additional information about unique and important aspects of the Medicaid program, check out our entire What Makes Medicaid, Medicaid? series. And for a high-level overview of this paper, see our Highlights: What Makes Medicaid, Medicaid? – Consumer Protections and Due Process factsheet.
