The OIG report examines state standards and requirements for network adequacy and access to care. The report was based on surveys and interviews of state officials, CMS employees, and External Quality Review Organizations. In the report, OIG notes that state standards on access to care vary widely, and that state oversight of health plans also varies. Based on its findings, OIG offers recommendations to CMS in the report.
