MassHealth Draft 1115 Waiver Public Hearing and Comment Dates Set

MassHealth reached out to Health Care For All and asked us to share the following information regarding their renewal for their 1115 Waiver request. The 1115 Waiver allows states to expand health care coverage to populations that aren’t traditionally covered and get federal dollars for doing so. The draft renewal request has been posted online for a 30-day public comment period. The comment period will be open until 5pm on September 19.

You can find all the relevant documents here. There will be two public hearings/stakeholder meetings. Here is the information for the hearings:

Stakeholder Meeting #1 (in conjunction with a meeting of the MassHealth Medical Care Advisory Committee and the MassHealth Payment Policy Advisory Board):
Date: Tuesday, August 27

Stakeholder Meeting #2:
