CMS Approves NY Fully Integrated Duals Advantage (FIDA) Demonstration

Richard Herrick and Carl Pucci in Finance & Reimbursement


CMS has approved the FIDA demonstration, a partnership with NY State to coordinate delivery of Medicare/Medicaid services for participating enrollees.  Attached is the CMS news release announcing the initiative, as well as a Fact Sheet which outlines the initial steps and timetables related to roll-out of the coordination of services for the dual-eligible population.  In addition, CMS has provided links (located at the bottom of the news release) which contain the detailed memo of understanding (MOU) between CMS and NYS.

NYSHFA’s Managed Care Task Force will begin its review of the FIDA demonstration information.  In addition, DOH Managed Care Workgroups have begun to discuss the implementation of various components of Medicaid Managed Care (rate development, network contracting, eligibility/enrollment, and access to care and quality.)  NYSHFA will continue to provide information on the transition to Managed Care for LTC providers over the coming months.
