CMS Proposes Improvements To Medicaid Payments

Armen Hareyan's picture

CMS is proposing changes to Medicaid reimbursement for school-based services that are expected to save taxpayers approximately $635 million in federal funds during the first year and $3.6 billion in federal funds over five years by eliminating fraud, waste and abuse in the program.

Improper billing by school districts for administrative costs and transportation services under the shared Federal/State Medicaid program is a long-standing concern of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
