A new report, Medicaid Payments for Medical Interpreters: Implementation Questions and Recommended Action, commissioned by the CT Health Foundation lays out details the state needs to consider in implementing legislation passed last year providing medical interpretation services to Medicaid consumers. Questions addressed include how much should DSS pay and to whom, in what situations will the services be available, and will payment be an administrative expense or a covered service. The report explores the experiences of 12 states and the District of Columbia and makes recommendations to ensure that every CT Medicaid recipient receives high-quality health care.
