Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Regulation: What’s Next?

4:35-5:35 pm

Under pressure from essential hospitals, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently withdrew its proposed Medicaid Fiscal Accountability Regulation (MFAR). This damaging rule threatened to upend state budgets and put access to care at risk. But while the rule is on the shelf for now, the policy ideas put forward in MFAR remain a threat. Medicaid expert Eva Johnson, senior advisor at Eyman Associates, and Erin O’Malley, senior policy director for America’s Essential Hospitals, will explore and dissect the current and future threats posed by these approaches and outline actionable next steps for hospitals.
