Medicaid Redesign Update

In the on-going efforts to redesign Georgia’s Medicaid and PeachCare programs, the Department of Community Health (DCH)
is continuing to analyze and evaluate its options and has convened three taskforces to gather feedback from consumer advocates, providers and other stakeholders.  The latest taskforce, focused on children and families will hold its first meeting on March 9th.  GHF’s Outreach and Advocacy Director Amanda Ptashkin will be there to represent health care consumers who currently access these programs or who will gain access through the Medicaid expansion in 2014.  Part of the charge of this taskforce includes identifying:

 

  • Program features identified in the Navigant report that are most/least appealing to meeting the needs of families and children;
  • Current features of the program that should be maintained;
  • Largest unmet need of the current program;
  • Better medical management and coordination for children in foster care;
  • Additional insights not identified in the report; and
  • Identification of critical design features needed to protect the needs of children and families

 

If you or your organization have thoughts on the above charge, please email Amanda Ptashkin.  To learn more about the redesign process, visit www.healthyfuturega.org/issues/careforgeorgiaskids
