Iowa Wellness Plan - Non-Emergency Medical Transportation

The state requests an amendment to extend the current waiver of assurance of non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) through December 31, 2016 in both the Marketplace Choice Plan and Wellness Plan section 1115 demonstrations. The current NEMT waiver in both demonstrations is scheduled to sunset on July 31, 2015. The state requests this amendment to extend the NEMT waiver to allow Medicaid expansion in Iowa to resemble a commercial benefit plan with the goals of improving health outcomes, aligning Medicaid with developments in the private insurance and Marketplace, and requiring beneficiaries to have a financial stake in their own health care. The federal public comment will be open from June 10, 2015 through July 10, 2015.
