1115 Waiver Concept Paper Submitted to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)

New York State Department of Health (DOH) has submitted a concept paper to the CMS for a new 1115 Waiver Demonstration. DOH is requesting $17 billion over five years to address health disparities exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic through integration of social care and health care. CHCANYS has successfully advocated for inclusion of an FQHC capitated Alternate Payment Methodology (APM) in the concept paper, a significant step forward in advancing an FQHC APM in partnership with the State. CHCANYS has developed a summary of the 1115 Waiver Demonstration concept paper highlighting the key points.
