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.
