The GAO has issued a report examining selected consumer protection requirements for dual eligible beneficiaries — low-income seniors and individuals with disabilities enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. The report summarizes such consumer protections for dual eligible beneficiaries (e.g., access to primary care providers, appeals processes) in the Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) and Medicare Advantage programs, along with Medicaid FFS and managed care plans. The report also highlights compliance and enforcement actions taken by CMS and selected states against managed care plans to help ensure that MA and Medicaid managed care organizations complied with relevant consumer protection requirements.
