On January 16, 2016, President Obama declared an emergency in the State of Michigan and ordered federal aid to supplement state and local response efforts due to the emergency conditions in the area affected by contaminated water. On February 16, 2016,  Michigan submitted a request to extend coverage to two optional coverage groups in Medicaid through the section 1115 demonstration: pregnant women and children through age 20, up to and including 400 percent of the federal poverty level, who are currently served by the Flint water system or were served by the Flint water system between April 2014 and the date on which the Flint water system is deemed safe by the appropriate authorities.  Individuals receive care through Medicaid managed care plans, receive all state plan benefits and lead abatement in the home.  The state requests a five year demonstration be authorized.
