Medicaid and CHIP Business Information Solutions – In 2010 CMS initiated the Medicaid and CHIP Business Information Solution (MACBIS) to meet mandates requiring reliable, comprehensive, and timely Medicaid and CHIP operational and programmatic data supported by leading edge technology and analytics solutions. MACBIS is an enterprise-wide initiative to ensure the Medicaid and CHIP data infrastructure and technology are commensurate to the programs’ role in evolving health care delivery reforms, access to coverage, and to enable proper monitoring and oversight. Aside from data needs to support the multi-billion dollar waiver negotiations, CMS will use MACBIS data for program integrity, evaluation of demonstrations, actuarial analysis, quality of care analysis, and to share this rich data set with states, stakeholders, and the research community.
MACBIS currently consists of four major projects: Medicaid and CHIP Program (MACPro), the Transformed Medicaid Statistical Information System (T-MSIS), the Medicaid Drug Rebate (MDR) program, the Medicaid and CHIP Financial program, the latter of which is the early planning in FY2017.
