What is the 1115 Waiver?

The NYS DOH 1115 Waiver is a federal-state partnership that allows New York State to implement a managed care program for Medicaid recipients. The waiver enables New York State to provide comprehensive and coordinated healthcare through managed care organizations, invest in evidence-based programs to address health disparities, and implement innovative initiatives. The waiver has improved access to care, quality of care, reduced costs, and provided flexibility for innovative programs, ultimately benefiting the health of Medicaid recipients in New York State.

Resources for Medicaid Eligibility Reviews

We've put together resources for service providers to help educate and inform the community about the Medicaid renewal process. Anyone in New York covered by Medicaid, Child Health Plus or the Essential Plan any time beginning March 2020 has stayed covered through continuous coverage until March 31, 2023.

Every single person receiving Medicaid will be checked over the next 14 months to make sure they’re still eligible for the program that provides health care for people with low incomes or disabilities.
