Medicaid Access Monitoring Plan

North Dakota's Medicaid Access Monitoring Plan (5 MB pdf) - submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on Oct. 1, 2016

The North Dakota Medicaid program wants to hear from Medicaid recipients about their experiences in finding health care providers and services in the state through an online survey.

North Dakota is a rural state and studies have indicated that in some instances it can be hard to find certain types of health care providers, regardless of what insurance a person might have.

Comments will be used as part of a process that will measure and track access to health care providers and services.

There are five areas where feedback is needed:

  • Primary care services (provided by a physician, nurse practitioner, physician assistant, federally-qualified health center, clinic, or dental provider)
  • Physician specialty services (cardiology, urology, and radiology)
  • Behavioral health services (mental health and substance abuse services)
  • Pre and post-natal childbirth services (pregnancy, child birth, and post-delivery care)
  • Home health services (transition services from a hospital to a home setting)

Online Survey

A brief five-minute survey asks Medicaid recipients and their family members about their experience in accessing Medicaid-funded health care services from the five areas listed above.

Feedback Welcome

Medicaid recipients can also share comments about access to health care providers and services by sending an e-mail to ndmedicaid@nd.gov.

Individuals can also use the e-mail address to inform North Dakota Medicaid about any challenges they face in accessing health care from service providers who accept Medicaid.
