CMS Waiver Process

The Governor’s office submitted an updated version of their waiver application to CMS on August 6th.  The new version reflects changes that have occurred since the original, April 26th submission.  As a result of new transparency regulations, the new version also includes a section relating to public responses to the proposal, and the state’s reactions to those responses.

CMS began their 30 day public comment period on August 21st, and it will remain open through September 20th.  The waiver application can be reviewed here, and comments may be submitted to CMS at this website.

KHCC, in partnership with a number of other advocacy organizations, developed a set of comments for the original waiver submission which may be reviewed  here, or summarized here.  We are now reviewing the changes in the new waiver, and developing an updated set of comments to submit relating to this version.
