From the Government Institute


On March 31, 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released the Medicaid Enterprise Certification Toolkit  version 2.0 and subsequently, an update to version 2.1 on August 11, 2016. Together, these documents provide guidance on how CMS intends to partner with states throughout their Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS) procurement and development processes in order to meet the updated MMIS certification criteria.

This issue brief provides an overview of the guidance and offers next steps for states.
