In the 50 years since Medicaid was enacted as Title XIX of the Social Security Act, Congress has made significant changes to statutory provisions governing eligibility, covered services, and financing. Federal regulations have been added, rescinded, and modified to interpret and implement the statute. As a result, the statute and regulations are dense and not always easy to navigate. To assist advocates and other stakeholders navigate this complexity, the Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) has published an updated reference guide to help locate specific provisions in statute and regulation, as well as in state plans.
Attached please find the MACPAC “Reference Guide to Federal Medicaid Statute and Regulations“, for your information.
