Opportunity for Public Comment on Integrating Care for Dually Eligible Individuals
On behalf of our partner, the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SC DHHS), the South Carolina Institute of Medicine and Public Health (IMPH) is highlighting an opportunity for public comment on the South Carolina Dual Eligible Demonstration (SCDuE) Proposal Draft published by SC DHHS.
Supported by a grant from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), SC DHHS is exploring development of a service delivery model for integration of care for individuals receiving both Medicare and Medicaid services. SCDuE aims to expand access to needed care but eliminate duplication of services and lower costs. South Carolina is one of fifteen states participating in the state demonstration projects through CMS. Download a copy of the draft proposal here.
Stakeholders can send comments using email, mail or a web form to SC DHHS for inclusion in the proposal to CMS. The comment period will close at the end of the business day on May 16, 2012.
1) Email firstname.lastname@example.org with “South Carolina Demonstration Proposal Draft Public Comments” in the subject line.
