Example MOUs

To improve access across diverse populations and large geographic areas, CMS expects that States will rely on multiple types of NWD/SEPs within their systems.  These entities may not have worked together in the past.  Therefore, it is essential that States foster productive working relationships by establishing clear guidelines on each entity’s responsibilities and confirming support through Memoranda of Understanding (MOUs).  MOUs should specify changes that NWD/SEPs need to make to their current processes to become compliant with the Balancing Incentive Program.
