Mathematica is developing Medicaid 1115 demonstration implementation and monitoring tools to support CMS oversight of these demonstrations. In addition, we are supporting states in addressing the opioid epidemic with a combination of strategies inside and outside of 1115 demonstrations—including those related to housing supports and care coordination services under Medicaid.
In addition to strengthening CMS oversight of Medicaid 1115 demonstrations, the development of new implementation, monitoring, and evaluation tools will help states and the policy community assess the performance of the demonstrations. Ultimately, the insights generated by rigorous state-led monitoring and evaluation will contribute to a larger body of knowledge about how to best provide health care to vulnerable individuals and families through the Medicaid program.
