Members of the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission will meet publicly on Thursday, April 11 and Friday, April 12.

Subjects on the two-day session’s agenda include:

  • Medicaid and children’s health insurance program (CHIP) financing
  • access to home- and community-based services
  • supplemental Medicaid hospital payments such as Medicaid disproportionate share (Medicaid DSH)
  • Medicaid unwinding
  • recommendations for MACPAC’s June report to Congress

Because they serve so many more Medicaid patients than the typical American hospital, community safety-net hospitals such as those that are part of the Alliance of Safety-Net Hospitals have an especially great stake in the outcome of MACPAC’s deliberations.
