Public Hearing on S.C. Medicaid Managed-Care Plan

MONDAY, AUGUST 23, 2010  10:00 AM

THIS is your chance to tell CMS and the state Medicaid agency what you think of the proposal to mandate managed care.

A public hearing by telephone has been scheduled for Monday, August 23rd, at 10:00 a.m. to receive public input about the Medicaid changes proposed by DHHS.

On July 1, 2010, DHHS filed a Medicaid state-plan amendment asking the federal government to make Managed Care mandatory for more than 500,000 Medicaid beneficiaries in our state, as well as allowing DHHS to qualify people for Managed Care who are currently ineligible.

This is the perfect opportunity to tell CMS how South Carolina DHHS’ proposed changes would impact you or the people you serve.

To participate, call (877) 251-0301 and provide the operator with the conference ID 93410633.

CMS suggests you call in 10 minutes prior to the 10:00 a.m. start time.

If you have further questions, contact Sue Berkowitz at sberk@scjustice.org.
