Iowa Wellness Plan

Iowa has requested an amendment to extend the current waiver of the guarantee of non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) through June 26, 2016 in the Marketplace Choice Plan 1115 demonstration and the Wellness Plan 1115 demonstration. The current NEMT waiver is set to sunset at the end of the first year of both demonstrations on December 31, 2014. The state requests this amendment to extend the duration of the NEMT waiver to allow Medicaid expansion in Iowa to resemble a commercial benefit plan with the goals of improving health outcomes, align Medicaid with developments in the private insurance and Marketplace, and require beneficiaries to have a financial stake in their own health care. The federal public comment period is open from September 23, 2014 through October 23, 2014.
