CMS Oversight of States' Preparation of the CMS-64 Report

The Medicaid program provides medical assistance to low-income individuals and individuals with disabilities. The Federal and State governments jointly fund and administer the Medicaid program. At the Federal level, CMS administers the program. The Federal Government pays its share of a State's Medicaid expenditures based on the Federal Medical Assistance Percentage, which varies depending on the State's relative per capita income. Within 30 days after the end of each quarter, States report expenditures and the associated Federal share on the CMS-64 report. The amounts that States report must represent actual expenditures. CMS is responsible for reviewing the CMS-64 report to ensure that the expenditures reported are consistent with Medicaid requirements and matched with the correct amount of Federal funds. CMS works with States to resolve any questionable expenditures. We will determine the effectiveness of CMS's oversight of Medicaid State expenditures reported on CMS-64 reports for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.
