Medicaid program; Medicaid eligibility quality control (MEQC) program requirements--HCFA. Final rule with comment period



Medicaid program; Medicaid eligibility quality control (MEQC) program requirements--HCFA. Final rule with comment period



Federal Register 55(105): 22142-22173



This rule revises the regulations governing the Medicaid eligibility quality control (MEQC) program to include more specific program requirements and to establish new timeframes for completing and reporting MEQC case findings to HCFA. The rule also establishes a performance-based threshold for States to meet before HCFA will consider good faith waiver requests of disallowance of Federal financial participation (FEP) in erroneous Medicaid payments and provides more definitive criteria for evaluating States' good faith efforts to meet the national standard error rate. In addition, the rule makes several technical changes and provides that a State may rebut its projected error rate only when it can present evidence that its projected error rate was based on erroneous data. These revisions will strengthen the basic MEQC program and provide flexibility and incentives to States to produce accurate Medicaid eligibility determinations.
