opportunity is to support States in developing their capacity for standardized collection and reporting of data on the quality of health care provided to adults covered by Medicaid.

It also seeks to strengthen States? analytic capacity to use the data in measuring and improving the quality of care for the approximately 30 million adults currently enrolled in Medicaid.

The Affordable Care Act, Title II, Subtitle I, Improving the Quality of Medicaid for Patients and Providers, section 2701, made available $300 million for Adult Health Quality Measures, of which $112 million will be used for this funding opportunity.

The remainder of any funds appropriated for adult Medicaid quality measurement is intended to fund other adult Medicaid quality measurement activities, including technical assistance to States.

Under this funding opportunity, there is no required State match.
