Agency Feedback CommentThe Departments are providing a thank you letter to work group membersNarrative Description*Section 311 of the Children’s Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (P.L. 111-3) directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Secretary of Labor to jointly establish a Medicaid, CHIP, and Employer-Sponsored Coverage Coordination Working Group (“the CHIP Working Group”). The CHIP Working Group, as chartered, under the legal authority of section 311 of CHIPRA is also governed by the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C. App. The establishment of the Working Group is in line with the Agency’s efforts to provide high-value health care, and collaborative partnerships. The representation on the Working Group is comprised of a collaboration of individuals from diverse backgrounds, ranging from public sector Medicaid and CHIP Directors, to health plan administrators. A key objective of the Working Group is to identify the impediments to the effective coordination of coverage available to families that include employees of employers that maintain group health plans and members who are eligible for medical assistance under title XIX or title XXI. The identification of these challenges will ensure that we are maximizing opportunities for individuals that already have access to health insurance in the private sector. In addition, the Working Group is charged with developing tools to improve communications between the private and public sector health care systems. Specifically, the Working Group is developing a model coverage coordination disclosure form for plan administrators of group health plans to permit a State to determine the availability and cost-effectiveness of coverage available under group health plans to employees who have family members who are eligible for premium assistance offered under a title XIX or title XXI State plan and to allow for coordination of coverage for enrollees of such plans.
