Waiver Negotiations Extended til Nov. 5th

CMS and the CA Department of Health Care Services are close to finalizing the 5-year 1115 Waiver Renewal, framed as California’s Bridge to Health Reform Implementation.

Apparently, all of the policy, program, and financial components are agreed-to. Both sides are currently in the final stages of negotiating the Waiver’s draft Terms & Conditions.

On Friday, CMS sent a letter to DHCS, authorizing a 5-day extension of the current Waiver in order for the parties agree to the final Terms & Conditions.

Expect an official Waiver announcement on or before Friday — and an ITUP analysis of the final Waiver soon thereafter.
