A new report out from the GAO suggests that state IT systems may not be up to snuff when it comes to judging Medicaid eligibility. The March 2 report says that even while some states have recently updated Medicaid Management Information Systems (MIMS), there is no requirement for state officials to track the effectiveness of those systems. As such, it is unclear whether updates were actually useful in achieving desired outcomes. This situation is likely to remain this way if a new GAO report released yesterday is any indication. In that report, the GAO says government responds to approximately 30% of its improvement suggestions.
