Larry Hogan on Thursday signed a bill to allow Medicaid and CHIP agencies to hold meetings with all state agencies to discuss changes to the states Medicaid and Medicare programs.
The measure would allow for a three-day public comment period before any changes are made to Medicaid or CHIP, Hogan said.
Hogan also signed a $100 million appropriation bill that funds the Medicaid and Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which provide aid to low-income residents.
The state Department of Administration will be responsible for coordinating the new federal Medicaid and supplemental nutrition assistance program, Hogan told reporters after signing the bill.
Hogans administration will also oversee a program that allows for states to establish a system for collecting and distributing food stamp benefits, Hogan added.
The program was created in 2015.
