  • 1.  1135 Waiver Requests?

    Posted 03-23-2020 10:12
    What are other states including in their 1135 waivers? Shelly shared Iowa's, but I'm curious if others are using those waivers as the vehicle for supporting services that can't meet their encounter or staffing requirements? Many of our services that are struggling are a blend of Medicaid and state dollars -- like supported employment or residential rehabilitation programs. Would those be covered in an 1135 waiver as well?

    Curious to hear what others doing...

    Good news: Maryland authorized telephonic guidance, including broad use of telephonic interventions, for psychiatric rehabilitation services over the weekend.
