State officials have decided to boost the performance of Colorado Benefits Management System by 2013.
Announcing their latest move, Gov. John Hickenlooper's office stated that Medicaid officials had signed a written agreement with the legal advocates and they had promised to improve the recent abysmal performance of the benefits system.
Dating to agreement between the state and client advocates, this contempt request came in an ongoing court battle over the computer system and delayed benefits.
In this agreement, the state Health Care Policy and Financing Administration committed to improve the "timeliness" of new applications to 95 percent by June 30, 2013.
"The settlement provides benchmarks and processes that will result in thousands of Coloradans getting their benefits on time, or eliminate the possibility of them being cut off”, said attorney Ed Kahn of the Center on Law and Policy.
In an official statement, Hickenlooper said that they were coordinating with different state agencies involved with CBMS to find real solutions that will benefit the thousands of people who depended on the computer system for state benefits.
Adding to it, he said that the agreement reflected their commitment to work with counties to provide these benefits to the state's most vulnerable residents in a timely manner.
