This worksheet, originally created by the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS), identifies key requirements of the ACA that impact state Medicaid and CHIP programs and poses questions for state officials to consider in preparing for actions that may need to be taken upon repeal. NASHP is pleased to share this tool allowing other states to preliminarily assess the impact of repeal on state Medicaid programs and identify efforts that would need to be taken upon repeal.
State Officials can use this tool to help answer the following questions:
- What administrative challenges will be posed to states?
- What operational changes will need to be addressed?
- How will technology systems be impacted?
- Could any of the programmatic, policy or systems changes result in cost savings to the state?
