The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) submitted its plan to integrate care for people who are eligible for both Medicare and Medicaid to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Here is a copy of the plan sent to CMS by the MDCH with a few changes from the version that was made available on March 5, 2012.
You can also link to the plan online by going to the Website for the Integrated Care Resource Center. For comparison, there are also links to plans from other states that have been submitted to CMS.
Comments on the MDCH plan should be sent to CMS by e-mail to MI-MedicareMedicaidCoordination@cms.hhs.gov by 5 p.m., May 30, 2012. It is important that the CMS hear from you about what you think of the plan and how it might affect people you know who have developmental disabilities.
I read through the plan, but did not find any changes that would affect the comments I sent earlier to the MDCH in April.
Here is background information on the Dual Eligible plan. Here are more comments on the plan.
