1115 Waiver Demonstration - TennCare III - Amendment 3


View in browser | Distributed by Center for Medicaid and CHIP Services (CMCS)


On October 12, 2022, Tennessee submitted an amendment to the TennCare III demonstration proposing to continue to provide the enhanced home and community-based services (HCBS) supports currently approved under emergency authority in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), beyond the expiration of the PHE. Specifically, the state is proposing to increase certain expenditure caps in the CHOICES and ECF CHOICES programs, provide time limited, one time exception to certain HCBS expenditure limits in CHOICES and ECF CHOICES, and add enabling technology as a covered benefit in CHOICES and ECF CHOICES. This amendment will allow Tennessee to continue providing an enhanced array of HCBS supports for individuals with disabilities on an ongoing basis beyond the end of the state’s currently approved, PHE-based authority. The federal comment period will be open from October 27, 2022 through November 26, 2022.
