1115 Transformation Waiver Extension Update

Dear RHP 2:

I am in receipt of attached letter that has been formally submitted to the Deputy Administrator and Director, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services at The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).  It outlines Texas’ request for an initial 15-month extension of the 1115 Medicaid Demonstration Waiver.

If CMS is agreeable, this extension period would allow time for state and federal government leaders to work through the terms of a longer, more expansive agreement.

You will see an annual ask of $3.1 billion for both DSRIP and Uncompensated Care, which translates to $3.875 billion for the requested 15-month extension period. This equates to an overall combined amount of $7.75 billion for 15 months.  Amounts are all funds (state and federal shares).

We will continue to update you on 1115 Medicaid Demonstration Waiver negotiations as we are informed in our capacity as a Regional Anchor.

Thank you,
