APPROVED 1115 DEMONSTRATION (11-w-00001/9)
The State of Hawai‘i, Department of Human Services has received a five-year extension of the QUEST Integration Section 1115 demonstration from CMS. The extension will run from August 1, 2019 through July 31, 2024.
For over two decades, the demonstration has efficiently and effectively delivered comprehensive benefits to a large number of beneficiaries through a competitive managed care delivery system. Under the extension, “QUEST Integration” (QI) will continue to build on this success by delivering services through managed care, while integrating the demonstration’s programs and benefits to ensure more patient-centered care delivery. All eligible beneficiaries will continue to be enrolled under QUEST Integration, and access to services will be determined by clinical criteria and medical necessity.
The Med-QUEST Division is committed to laying the foundation for innovative programs that support and create healthy families and healthy communities through the QUEST program. To accomplish this goal, MQD is building the Hawai‘i ‘Ohana Nui Project Expansion (HOPE) program, a five-year initiative to develop and implement a roadmap to achieve this vision of healthy families and healthy communities. The QUEST Integration waiver will be the vehicle for the HOPE program to be put into practice.
