CMS Approves Reform 2020 Section 1115 Waiver

On October 18, 2013 the Department of Human Services (DHS) received approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for federal financial participation (FFP) on the Alternative Care program. This approval relates to the contingency items that were a part of Reform 2020.  As required by Minnesota Laws 2013, DHS submitted a plan for investing the state dollars made available by the enhanced FFP for Alternative Care to Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB). This plan for the contingency items includes investments in proposals that were passed by the legislature: Enhancing Vulnerable Adult Protection; First Contact Simplification, Access and Transition Support; HCBS Critical Access Study and Service Development; and Work Empower and Encourage Independence. This plan was approved by MMB on October 30, 2013.
