Iowa Wellness Plan - Extension (2016)

Iowa requests a 3-year extension for their section 1115 demonstration which was approved December 30, 2013. The demonstration expands Medicaid for beneficiaries with incomes up to and including 133 percent of the federal poverty level. The demonstration includes an incentive program to encourage the use of preventive services by charging some beneficiaries premiums that can be waived if beneficiaries complete certain healthy behavior activities and as well as providing enhanced dental benefits if beneficiaries have periodic dental exams. The demonstration waives the assurance to provide non-emergency medical transportation. Iowa requests an extension of all current federal waivers and expenditure authorities and no program changes are proposed. The federal comment period will be open from June 20, 2016 through July 20, 2016.
