The five year demonstration project, which is administered by the Department of Human Services, Med-QUEST Division (MQD), integrates the previous managed care programs to align with requirements of the Affordable Care Act, provides a more patient-centered healthcare delivery system, and expands access to home and community based services, all with the goal of delivering better health outcomes more efficiently. This demonstration project is currently approved through December 31, 2018.
Under the provision of federal law, the State must hold a public forum to solicit comments on the progress of the demonstration project.
