1915(c) Waiver Renewals Expected Through April 2015

This document provides a list of projected submission dates for state waivers from March of 2014 through April of 2015. For state and national partners interested in becoming involved in state’s transition plan process, these dates can illustrate key periods for advocacy:

  • When a state submits a waiver renewal, they must include in that renewal a Transition Plan for services available in that waiver. Approximately 60 days before the expected submission date, look for the state to post an alert that a Transition Plan for that specific waiver will soon be available for public comment.
  • Exactly 120 days from the date that a state submits a waiver renewal, they must submit a Statewide Transition Plan for the remaining HCBS offered in that state. Approximately 60 days after the expected submission date look for the state to post an alert that a Statewide Transition Plan for all other waivers will soon be available for public comment.

This list covers renewals only. If states decide to amend a waiver to incorporate more slots, or change rates, or amend services, those also have to be posted for 30 review as per the waiver rules, but CMS does not have a good way to project when those amendments would come in.
