    Description
    Report of the Work Group convened to identify and develop processes for streamlining the application and enrollment process for the Commonwealth's program of medical assistance services provided pursuant to the state plan for medical assistance, also known as Medicaid, and services provided through the Family Access to Medical Insurance Security (FAMIS) Plan for eligible incarcerated individuals so that applicable services shall be available to such individuals immediately upon release from the correctional facility. The work group shall identify and take such steps as may be feasible to implement an efficient and cost-effective process for (i) determining eligibility for Medicaid and FAMIS at the time of incarceration or detention and (ii) processing applications for eligible individuals incarcerated in state, local, or regional correctional facilities in order to ensure a seamless provision of appropriate Medicaid and FAMIS services upon release and reentry into society; and shall consider (a) how the Department of Medical Assistance Services' Central Processing Unit may be leveraged to benefit this process and (b) how the process may also be utilized to ensure appropriate coverage for inpatient hospitalization of inmates eligible for Medicaid services.
