NAELA Joins Aging and Disability Advocates Urging CMS to Deny Florida’s Harmful Request to End Prior Quarter Coverage

NAELA joined other organizations in a letter urging the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to deny Florida’s proposed Section 1115 waiver of Medicaid prior quarter coverage. According to the letter, “Florida’s proposal does not meet the requirements for approval of an 1115 waiver as it does not test a proposition nor promote the objectives of federal Medicaid law. Consequently, CMS must deny Florida’s request.”
