Arkansas' Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA-like)

  • Arkansas' Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA-like) 2017 Extension (modified: 1 year ago)
    Arkansas is seeking to extend its TEFRA-like demonstration for three years with no program changes. This demonstration operates statewide and provides Medicaid services to children age 18 and under with substantial disabilities who meet the medical necessity requirement for institutional placement, but whose medical services can be provided in the home. The objective of the demonstration is to continue to provide medical services to disabled children eligible for Medicaid under section 134 of the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA). The state is not proposing any programmatic changes to the demonstration with this extension request. The federal public comment period will be open from November 2, 2017 to December 2, 2017.
