On November 21, 2018, the Substance Use Disorder (SUD) portion of the waiver was approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The behavioral health portions of the waiver are still under negotiation.

  • Waiver news
  • State or federal policy changes
  • Training opportunities, including webinars
  • Email addresses for public comment, when applicable
