CMS Approves NYS MRT Demonstration Extension Till 2021

Dear MRT Listserv Subscriber:

We are pleased to announce that on December 7, 2016, CMS approved New York’s request to extend its Medicaid Section 1115 waiver, the Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) Demonstration, through March 31, 2021.

The 1115 waiver has been renamed from the Partnership Plan to the MRT Demonstration as a reflection of the significant MRT efforts that have improved and expanded the waiver’s purpose. This approval is the result of significant efforts by both the New York and CMS teams, and has been informed by extensive stakeholder input. Thank you to all who have contributed to this effort. The Special Terms and Conditions (STCs) will be posted shortly and an announcement will be sent to this listserv.
