States that simply fail to access or pay for access to electronic data sources, even when cost effective and efficient, may undermine this policy of electronic primacy....
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services
Why is this so important? Because of the Affordable Care Act of 2010. Under the act, federal regulators are placing a greater premium than ever on electronic data sources for eligibility determinations.
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services recently put it this way: "States that simply fail to access or pay for access to electronic data sources, even when cost effective and efficient, may undermine this policy of electronic primacy...." That remark comes from the agency's detailed commentary on its final rule for implementing provisions of the Affordable Care Act. (Federal Register, Vol. 77, No. 57, March 23, 2012)
We heartily agree! Please send us an email at govinfo@TheWorkNumber.com to learn exactly how we can supply you with a data source that IS cost effective and efficient.
