Regulatory complexity makes Medicaid a challenging market for all concerned—governments, providers, and plans alike. Milliman helps you find the best way forward. Our experts have diverse actuarial, operational, and market experience from decades in the realm of government healthcare services.
Milliman has an extensive background working with states on Medicaid managed care rate setting. We value our working relationships with our Medicaid state agency clients and use a collaborative process to ensure transparency and open communication.
Milliman works with health plans to navigate all of Medicaid's complexities. With our unparalleled actuarial expertise, we help plans understand their populations, evaluate capitation rates, and optimize provider relationships.
Our consultants apply many different methods and approaches for setting actuarially sound capitation rates. We use both fee-for-service and managed-care encounter data, depending on the situation and availability of data. Our goal is to help our clients develop realistic scenarios that meet their needs.
We also allow clients to focus on making sound business decisions by understanding all facets of the bidding process. We monitor shifting CMS regulations, freeing clients from worry about bids being rejected because of technicalities. Our support extends beyond bid submission, through desk review and audit.
We work with many different diagnostic risk adjusters, including Chronic Illness and Disability Payment System, Medicaid Rx, DxCG, Adjusted Clinical Groups, and the CMS Hierarchy for Condition Categories.
