The new Medicaid Omnibus bill is a more collaborative approach to 

help move the state’s Medicaid Managed Care Program forward.  This 

bi-partisan bill reduces the administrative burden for providers and

insurers and lays out processes to improve the members’ continuity of

    administrative burden and improved the Member’s experience

    HFS to ability to render a final decision if the parties cannot
    come to a resolution on their own
