3 Months Late – Massachusetts Waiver Extended

Just a quick FYI – Today’s Boston Globe reports that the Federal Government has approved a new 3 year Medicaid demonstration waiver for Massachusetts – with $10.6 billion to enable the continuation and growth of the state’s health insurance coverage expansion program.  The original 3 year waiver expired at the end of June, and the state and Federal officials had been discussing a new 3 year waiver for many months before that deadline.  Since the end of June, the state’s program has been running on a series of several week extensions to the old waiver granted by the Federal Government.
