CMS has issued a May 31, 2011 informational bulletin to states on Section 6501 of the ACA, which requires states to terminate the Medicaid participation of any individual or entity terminated under Medicare or any other Medicaid state plan. CMS implemented this provision through a broader Medicare and Medicaid provider/supplier screening rule published February 2, 2011.  In the May 31 bulletin, CMS discusses a secure, web-based portal it has established to allow states to share information regarding terminated providers, along with a “Medicaid State plan preprint” it is developing for states to use when submitting a state plan amendment to implement program integrity provisions. The bulletin also includes operational guidance in the form of “Frequently Asked Questions” regarding Section 6501.
