  • Maine Substance Use Disorder Care Initiative
    On November 26, 2019, Maine requested a new 5-year section 1115 demonstration which seeks to provide reimbursement for clinically appropriate services that are otherwise approved under the Maine Medicaid State Plan, delivered to individuals aged 21-65 with Substance Use Disorder (SUD) by Institutes of Mental Disease (IMDs). This waiver will also focus efforts on MaineCare-enrolled parents with SUD who are involved with or at- risk of involvement with Child Protective Services (CPS). Maine has identified four pilots which include community-based skill development, parenting interventions, and MaineCare eligibility changes to address coverage and service delivery gaps that impact the health and well-being of this target population and their families. The federal public comment period will be open from December 12, 2019 through January 11, 2020.

  • New York MRT DSRIP - Amendment Request
    New York is submitting a request to amend its Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) demonstration for their Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program. This proposal is structured in two phases: a one-year extension of the current waiver program expiring on March 31, 2020; and a subsequent three-year renewal that phases. Both phases, according to the state, will allow them to continue increasing efficiencies across delivery systems-and continue down the path of delivering value-based care to New Yorkers. The federal public comment period will be open from December 11, 2019 through January 10, 2020.

  • Healthy Indiana Plan - Workforce Bridge Account Amendment
    On July 25, 2019, the State of Indiana submitted an amendment to their section 1115 demonstration, "Healthy Indiana Plan." This amendment will allow the state to establish "Workforce Bridge Accounts" which would provide qualifying outgoing HIP participants the ability to continue to use up to $1,000 for premiums, deductibles, copayments and coinsurance for 12 months during their transition to commercial coverage. The HIP Workforce Bridge Account is proposed with the goals of supporting the transition to commercial coverage and mitigating the disincentive associated with increasing income and losing access to HIP coverage. This amendment also proposes changes to the Gateway to Work program, adding an exemption for members of federally recognized tribes and changing the exemption for caretakers of dependent children to caretakers of a dependent child under the age of 13. The federal comment period will be open from August 8, 2019 through September 7, 2019.
