The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services yesterday released guidance on a new web portal effective Feb. 1 for submitting Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program state plan amendments (SPA) and section 1915 waivers.

The effort is part of an ongoing CMS initiative to speed and improve the review process.
