Medicaid Quality Strategy

Requirements as outlined under Code of Federal Regulation 42 CFR 438.200 - 204 delineate State responsibilities for adoption of a Quality Strategy. 42 CFR 438.202(a) states that States will have a written strategy for assessing and improving the quality of managed care services offered by all [Managed Care Organizations] MCOs and [Prepaid Inpatient Health Plans] PIHPs.

The State of Colorado Quality Strategy was adopted after commentary was obtained from stakeholders and the public.


Starting in 2015 some online reports include an Accessible format that list just the Executive Summary. Non-Accessible reports including all content can be requested by contacting the Department’s Quality and Health Improvement Unit.
