In this session, CMS, MITRE and State technical experts facilitate a discussion designed to help states develop more effective Medicaid IT systems that align with CMS’ modularity mandate.  We will discuss how to leverage the Medicaid Eligibility and Enrollment Toolkit (MEET) and Medicaid Enterprise Certification Toolkit (MECT). MEET v1.0 and MECTv 2.2, released in third quarter 2017, offer more flexibility with modular and agile development and accommodate various state approaches to system development lifecycles. The session will review the critical process steps for the toolkits as well as describe the various phases of MMIS certifications and E&E reviews and how to prepare for them.  States will also gain a broader understanding of the independent verification and validation (IV&V) role as an unbiased evaluator, intended to ensure the integrity of certification processes at the state level.
