In 2016 CMS announced a vision for accelerating the move toward modularity and reuse, and facilitate lower-risk, more cost- effective, and technically successful IT solutions for Medicaid IT, that involved Vendor submission of modules for “Precertification”. Precertification was envisioned as a separate, vendor-facing process with unique precertification criteria. Once precertified, that solution will be added by CMS to a list on Medicaid.gov that the states can leverage for purchasing decisions for their Medicaid Enterprise. CMS launched a Vendor Precertified Module Pilot in October 2017 that was designed to not only support acceleration toward modularity, reuse and innovation but to consider how MMIS certification could be streamlined with the use of precertified modules. This presentation provides an overview of the Pilot and will include discussions on vendor experience, the evaluation process, lessons learned, and future developments.
