Federal Efforts to Recoup Money Unlikely to Impact Managed Care

Confirming Eligibility of ACA Medicaid Enrollees ‘Top Priority’ of Administration
– Healthcare Financial Management Association

Manatt’s Jocelyn Guyer, a managing director with Manatt Health, was quoted in a Healthcare Financial Management Association’s hfm magazine on the Trump administration’s initiatives to confirm Affordable Care Act Medicaid enrollee eligibility.

Guyer explained that hospitals and other providers are unlikely to see any impact among enrollees who are found to be eligible for a different category of Medicaid coverage, given that the result would be merely a reshuffling of their coverage category. She added that additional managed care plans are unlikely to be impacted by federal efforts to recoup misspent money, as that is not typically done.
