During its January meeting, the non-partisan Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) made several recommendations to Congress that could pave the way for additional improvements to Medicaid with a more receptive administration and new Congress. MACPAC’s recent recommendations address three policy areas: extending postpartum coverage, instating an automatic countercyclical Medicaid financing adjustment during economic downturns, and estate recovery policies related to long-term services and supports (LTSS). We at Community Catalyst applaud MACPAC’s recommendations and call on Congress to make these recommendations a reality.

What are the details behind each of MACPAC’s recommendations?

  • Extending Postpartum Coverage. 
  • Automatic Countercyclical Financing Adjustment During Economic Downturns. 
  • Estate Recovery Policies Related to LTSS Medicaid Coverage.
