CMS Approves Six-Month Extension of MFPP Waiver through Dec. 31, 2016

The Minnesota Family Planning Program (MFPP) section 1115 waiver gives Minnesota the authority to receive federal matching funds for family planning services to men and women, ages 15 to 50, who have family incomes at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level and who are not enrolled in Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare.

State law requires DHS to seek state plan authority for the MFPP. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) granted a temporary extension of the MFPP waiver through Dec. 31, 2016. The extension of the waiver will allow the program to operate under the existing terms and conditions as DHS prepares for the transition to state plan authority.
