CMS Grants One-Year Extension of 1115 Waiver Authority While Renewal Application is Under Review

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended AHCCCS’ 1115 Waiver Demonstration authority for a one-year period, through Sept. 30, 2022, while they continue to review the agency’s 2021-2026 Waiver renewal application.

The extension grants authority to continue specific programs for a sixth year, including the Targeted Investments Program.

The full 1115 Waiver renewal package, seeking to implement new initiatives such as coverage of traditional healing, Targeted Investments 2.0, and the Housing and Health Opportunities demonstration, was submitted to CMS on December 21, 2020 and will be subject to negotiation over the next 12 months. If approved, in part or in full, the next five-year waiver will run from Oct. 1, 2022 through Sept. 30, 2027.
