  • Mississippi Medicaid Workforce Training Initiative - Updated (modified: 1 year ago)
    On January 16, 2018, Mississippi submitted a request for a new demonstration to implement workforce training requirements for Medicaid-eligible non-disabled adults, including low-income parents/caretakers and individuals eligible for Transitional Medical Assistance (TMA). Mississippi's goal is to provide individuals with tools to improve certain areas of their lives that have a direct impact on their health status. The initial 30-day federal public comment period (January 23, 2018 - February 22, 2018) did not include the state's proposal to provide an additional 12 months of coverage for individuals who continue to participate in community engagement activities after their 12 months of TMA has ended, and would otherwise lose Medicaid eligibility. CMS is providing a second federal public comment period for the supplemental application materials submitted as part of the state's new proposal. The second federal public comment period will be open from July 19, 2018 - August 18, 2018.
