CMS approves new waiver to overhaul state Medicaid program

BOSTON—Representative Jeffrey Sánchez (D-Jamaica Plain), House Chairman of the Joint Committee on Health Care Financing issued the following statement, upon the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ approval of the 1115 Medicaid Waiver:

“This waiver is another step forward in the Commonwealth’s health reform efforts to make healthcare more equitable and affordable. The redesign of MassHealth under the waiver will give us the tools to significantly improve the way healthcare is provided for the most vulnerable patients and will have the potential to influence positive developments for the entire healthcare system. I look forward to working with the Administration, my colleagues in the Legislature, and other stakeholders to ensure the successful implementation of the waiver.”
