The National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD) has released a report calling for an improved Medicaid program better designed to address the challenges that lie ahead for states in managing a sustainable Medicaid program. NAMD outlined three areas where change is needed to supports innovation:

  • Focus on improved health care outcomes over bureaucratic process measures;
  • Streamline business practices to ensure state flexibility and spur greater innovation in the program; and
  • Support a system for rapid dissemination of best practices so that all states can benefit from identified advancements.
