GOP-Led Medicaid Expansion States Test Limits of CMS Flexibility on Waivers
Friday, May 8, 2015
“Our greatest concern is that without CMS' approval of the second waiver, the program currently covering nearly 600,000 Michigan residents could go away,” said Kim Sibilsky, CEO of the Michigan Primary Care Association.
She estimated that about 20,000 to 30,000 people might face cost sharing as high as 7% of their incomes, while many beneficiaries could avoid the cost increase through meeting program criteria for healthy behaviors. “We strongly urge CMS to approve the waiver and allow this critical program to continue,” she added.
