Comments: Arkansas Health and Opportuinty for Me (ARHOME) Demonstration Application

Executive Summary

In comments to the Department of Health and Human Services, NHeLP explains that the ARHOME project raises serious legal concerns. The application does not include a sufficient level of detail to allow for meaningful comment on several features of the project. What is clear from the application is that Arkansas is seeking permission to implement a number of policies – imposing premiums, waiving retroactive coverage, and restricting access to services through various mechanisms – that conflict with the core objective of the Medicaid Act and serve no experimental purpose.
