Washington Medicaid Transformation Project Demonstration Extension Request

Executive Summary

In comments to the Department of Health and Human Services, the National Health Law Program urges HHS to ensure that appropriate guardrails are placed on any Medicaid funding for prison, jail, and other institutional reenty, to ensure that it is used strictly for services that aid in re-entry and that is primarily used for home and community based services. We also urge HHS to reject Washington’s request to waive the Institutions for Mental Diseases (IMD) exclusion for certain psychiatric and substance use disorder facilities.
