Access Monitoring Review Plan

In accordance with 42 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 477, requires States to develop a medical assistance access monitoring review plan to evaluate enrollees’ access to certain Medicaid services. These access monitoring review plans, and all other requirements in the rule, apply to fee-for-service Medicaid rates only and does not apply to managed care payments.

Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services developed an access review monitoring plan for the following service categories:

  •  Primary care

  •  Physician specialist services (e.g., cardiology, urology, radiology)

  •  Behavioral health services

  •  Obstetrician services

  •  Home health services

The 2016 Access Review Monitoring Plan can be found below.
