Dear MRT Listserv Subscriber:
The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) is providing notice of the State's intent to request approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for a four (4) year waiver amendment to further support quality improvements and cost savings through the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program. As with the original Medicaid Redesign Team (MRT) waiver, New York State seeks a continuation of DSRIP for the 1-year balance of the 1115 waiver ending on March 31, 2021 and conceptual agreement to an additional 3 years from April 2021 to March 31, 2024. Thus, the full four-year extension/renewal period (1-year extension and 3 years of renewal) would span from April 1, 2020 through March 31, 2024.
A draft of the amendment proposal is available for review at: http://www.health.ny.gov/health_care/medicaid/redesign/waiver_amendment_update.htm.
