of Interoperability in the Health & Human Services System
APHSA has collected the success stories of states who
implemented integrated eligibility services. Featured in this report are
several of our member states’ stories, highlighting how they leveraged an
integrated funding mechanism (the A-87 Exception) which allows good business
design to apply across a broad range of programs and services. It provides
benefits to states, customers, and federal partners, ranging from cost
containment to improved customer service, enhanced security and privacy,
program integrity, and better outcomes for children and families. Although the
case studies speak to the A-87 Exception funding, the benefits and lessons
learned go beyond that Exception to integrated funding in general.
A-87 Contingency Steps
With the Exception to the regular A-87 cost allocation rules potentially expiring on December 31, 2018, APHSA has created a 1-page document with a list of contingency steps states are encouraged to take now to prepare. Access the document here.
