CMS Approves Arizona’s Medicaid Community Engagement Demonstration Amendment
(CMS press release, 1/18/19). See CMS approves 8th state for Medicaid work requirement (Healthcare Dive, 1/22/19).

WORTH REPEATING: Tennessee proposes to amend its demonstration to add community-engagement requirements as a condition of eligibility for certain individuals age 19 through 64 who are enrolled in the parent/caretaker-relative eligibility group, a very low-income population. The federal public comment period for that proposal is open until February 7. For updates on other §1115 waiver proposals see the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Medicaid Waiver Tracker: Approved and Pending Section 1115 Waivers by State.
