Medicaid 1115 Waiver Extension

On July 11, 2018, EOHHS submitted a request to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) an extension of the current Medicaid 1115 Waiver which is anticipated to take effect January 1, 2019 and end December 31, 2023. The request seeks to continue all current authorities with some changes essential to successfully transform the Medicaid program. 

The extension request (available electronically below) was posted for an initial 30-day public comment period on March 23, 2018. Three (3) public hearings were held in geographically distinct areas of the state on April 2nd, 3rd and 10th.  A summary of comments received and EOHHS' responses to each is available electronically below. 

The EOHHS Taskforce will be the main venue for EOHHS to provide updates on the Medicaid 1115 Waiver Extension request. Beginning in August of 2017, the Medicaid 1115 Waiver Extension request will be a standing agenda item. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments please contact Melody Lawrence at  For EOHHS Taskforce meeting agendas and minutes, see the Secretary of State website.
