Posted on February 15, 2018

The State is proposing to request approval from the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to extend the QUEST Integration Demonstration under Section 1115(a) of the Social Security Act for an additional five years, and to amend the Medicaid State Plan, as appropriate, in order to incorporate specific measures that will further transform and improve the health delivery system for low-income Hawai‘i residents.  The State will request approval of a five-year extension of the 1115 Demonstration (Waiver) beginning January 1, 2019 and continuing through December 31, 2024.
