“The demonstrations in those states have produced enough preliminary findings of quality outcomes and cost savings to support HHS and CMS in deciding to continue their operations, and this is CMS’s way of recognizing that the states really want to keep the demonstrations operating as well. The legislatures in those states support them and there’s enough consensus among everybody involved that they should keep operating,” observes Kevin Malone, an associate in the Health Care and Life Sciences practice in the Washington, D.C., office of Epstein Becker & Green, P.C., and a former duals officer at CMS.
