Population Description

State Medicaid Waivers

  • Expands Medicaid by purchasing Marketplace QHP coverage for all newly eligible adults.
  • Requires newly eligible adults to enroll in Marketplace QHPs to receive Medicaid services.
  • Provides services that are outside the QHP benefit package, such as Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment for 19 and 20 year olds, free choice of family planning provider, and non-emergency medical transportation, through the state’s Medicaid fee-for-service delivery system.
  • Establishes health savings accounts to which non-medically frail beneficiaries from 50-138% FPL make monthly income-based contributions, ranging from $5 to $25 per month, to be used for co-payments and co-insurance.
  • These contributions are not a condition of Medicaid eligibility.
  • Imposes cost-sharing at the point-of-service at state plan amounts for beneficiaries above 100% FPL who do not make monthly account contributions.
