CMS approves children’s home and community-based service waiver

CMS announced the approval of two waiver amendments for New York’s Children’s Medicaid System Transformation. The goal of the Children’s Medicaid System Transformation is to streamline the care delivery system for high needs children in New York, expanding care management and adding new home and community-based services to the Medicaid benefit. The approved amendments include the 1915(c) waiver amendment which consolidates six previous waivers into a single waiver, making all children eligible for the same set of benefits, as well as the 1115 wavier amendment which adds certain Medicaid State Plan behavioral health services into the Medicaid managed care benefits and adds home and community-based services into the managed care benefit package.
