Medicaid Open Door Initiative

This example was created for training and is not official agency text.

  • Before

    The Open Door Initiative is a program based on a simple and fresh attitude: that the CMS desires to better hear and interact with those beneficiaries, providers, and other stakeholders interested in the delivery of quality healthcare for our nation’s seniors and beneficiaries with disabilities. This increased emphasis on responsiveness is captured through an ongoing series of ‘Open Door Forums’ that provide a dialogue about both the many individual service areas and beneficiary needs within CMS.
