In accordance with the requirements of the federal Medicaid authority, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the Department of Medical Assistance Services gives Notice that the Agency is publishing for public comment a draft of the DMAS 2017-2019 Medicaid Quality Strategy. The Code of Federal Regulations, specifically, 42 CFR §438.340, requires states that contract with Managed Care Organizations (MCOs) to have a written strategy for accessing and improving the quality of managed care services offered to all MCOs.

The purpose of this Notice is to fulfill that requirement. 

A copy of the 2017-2019 Medicaid Quality Strategy may be reviewed on the DMAS web site at the following address:
