1115 Waiver Demonstration - Healthier Mississippi - Extension Request


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


On October 13, 2022, the State of Mississippi submitted 5 year extension request for their current Section 1115 Demonstration entitled “Heathier Mississippi” to be effective October 1, 2023, through September 30, 2028. The demonstration has operated since 2006 and the state is requesting no programmatic changes to the demonstration with this extension request. The “Heathier Mississippi” demonstration provides Medicaid services to aged, blind or disabled individuals who have no Medicare coverage and who are not otherwise eligible for Medicaid. The goal is to improve the overall health of individuals who, without the this demonstration, have very limited access to health care, by providing primary and preventive care. The federal comment period will be open from October 31, 2022, through November 30, 2022.
