1. Please consider signing your organization onto this letter of support for H1246/S749 An Act Protecting The Homes Of Seniors And Disabled People On MassHealth. The letter and a fact sheet about the bill are attached. The bill was reported favorably out of the Joint Health Care Finance Committee and is now before the House Ways and Means Committee.
We're writing about two opportunities to sign on to comments to CMS about the MassHealth 1115 extension request. We've called out two issues where we thought comments to CMS are most needed- 1. urging CMS not to allow waiver of the Medicaid requirement of 3 months retroactive coverage and 2. uging CMS to approve something they have not yet approved when other states asked --Medicaid coverage to people in prisons & jails 30 days prior to release.
