This fact sheet summarizes key features of IA’s Medicaid expansion waivers.
This fact sheet summarizes key features of AR’s Medicaid expansion waiver.
This brief focuses on Section 1115 Medicaid demonstration waivers related to implementation of the ACA Medicaid expansion (eligible for ACA enhanced matching funds) or other coverage (not eligible for ACA enhanced matching funds). To date, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has approved waivers to implement the Medicaid expansion in five states: Arkansas, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania and most recently Indiana. In addition, Pennsylvania has a waiver proposal. In addition, New Hampshire has a proposal pending with CMS, and Governors in both Tennessee and Utah have been negotiating plans with CMS, but these plans also need to be approved by the state legislature.
This fact sheet provides a summary of the approved waiver in New Hampshire. New Hampshire has already implemented the ACA Medicaid expansion, but state legislation required the state to submit a waiver to implement mandatory Qualified Health Plan (QHP) premium assistance beginning in January 2016.
This fact sheet provides a summary of the proposal to expand Medicaid in Utah. This has not been officially submitted to CMS and needs state legislative approval before it could be implemented.
This fact sheet describes Tennessee’s 1115 waiver demonstration project, Insure Tennessee, which expands the State’s Medicaid program under the Affordable Care Act.
This fact sheet summarizes key elements of Indiana’s Section 1115 Medicaid expansion waiver, HIP 2.0.
How Have State Medicaid Expansion Decisions Affected the Experiences of Low-Income Adults? Perspectives from Ohio, Arkansas, and Missouri
This brief examines the experiences of low-income adults in three states that have made varied Medicaid expansion decisions: Ohio, which adopted the ACA Medicaid expansion, Arkansas which implemented the Medicaid expansion through a “Private Option” waiver, and Missouri, which has not adopted the expansion. While Arkansas and Ohio implemented the expansion in different ways, participants in both states described how obtaining coverage improved their ability to access care, contributing to improvements in their ability to work and family relationships. In contrast, participants in Missouri remained uninsured limiting their ability to obtain needed care, creating significant stress and anxiety in their lives, and interfering with their ability to work and care for their families.
This fact sheet describes Pennsylvania’s approved 1115 waiver demonstration, Healthy PA, which will implement the ACA’s Medicaid expansion.
