Ensuring Access to Medicaid Under Health Reform

This May 2011 paper summarizes key issues from a roundtable discussion of federal and state officials and experts in December 2010. Participants discussed access gaps in access to care in Medicaid, approaches to increase provider participation in Medicaid, and greater support for safety-net providers. Coordination of service delivery systems and between Medicaid and the new exchanges were also discussed. The roundtable was convened by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured.
