New Maine Governor Rejects 1115 Waiver

Yesterday, Maine's new Governor, Janet Mills, informed the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that Maine would not move forward with its 1115 Medicaid waiver. The waiver, approved by CMS, would for the first time create restrictions to Section 1917 of the Social Security Act by imposing limits on Medicaid qualified annuities. NAELA previously submitted comments in opposition to the waiver. Read NAELA's comments to CMS.
