Florida Medicaid Access Monitoring Review Plan (AMRP) Report and Public Input

Recently enacted Federal regulations require state Medicaid programs to develop and publish a medical assistance access monitoring review plan (AMRP) for the state’s Medicaid recipients.

In the final clarification for the rule (CMS-2328-FC; Final Access Rule with Comments), CMS stated that the rule applied only to the state’s fee-for-service population, and specifically excluded any managed care populations or any populations covered by a federal waiver program. The first report is due to CMS by October 1, 2016. This report represents Florida’s submission to meet the AMRP requirements and establishes a baseline for future monitoring review using calendar year 2015 data.

Public Notice and Public Comment: August 22, 2016 - September 21, 2016

The Agency will provide a 30-day public notice and comment period prior to the submission of the AMRP to Federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The Agency will consider all public comments received regarding the development of the waiver amendment.

The 30-day public notice and public comment period will be held August 22, 2016 through September 22, 2016. To view the complete report, please click the following link:
