Changes to the Payment Error Rate Measurement and Medicaid Eligibility Quality Control Programs

On June 29, 2017 CMS posted a final rule that will publish on July 5, 2017 to implement changes to the Payment Error Rate Measurement (PERM) and Medicaid Eligibility Quality Control (MEQC) programs to reflect changes to the way states adjudicate eligibility for Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) required by law, as well as to implement other changes to the PERM and MEQC programs. The final rule implements policy and operational improvements to the PERM and MEQC programs that will reduce state burden, improve program integrity, and promote state accountability.
