Adult Medicaid Quality Grant
The Oklahoma Health Care Authority (OHCA) was awarded $2 million for the Adult Medicaid Quality Grant (AMQG) from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) on December 21, 2012.
The grant will be used to increase the OHCA’s capacity for standardized data collection and reporting of the data on quality of health care provided to approximately 430,812 adults currently eligible for Medicaid.
Additionally, grant funds will be used to conduct two quality improvement projects focusing on two out of the 26 Initial Core Set of Adult Health Measures: cervical cancer screening and Hemoglobin A1C testing. OHCA’s goal is to increase awareness for preventive services and improve the number of adult preventive screenings received by SoonerCare members.
