    Objections to AHCCCS Waiver Requests

    As required by law, AHCCCS submitted Medicaid Section 1115 waivers to the Centers for Medicaid and Medicaid (“CMS”) to allow Arizona’s Medicaid program to impose additional requirements on recipients, including work requirements for “able-bodied” adults. AHCCCS also asked to be allowed to eliminate retroactive coverage for newly approved applicants. On behalf of the Institute and other advocates, we submitted comments in opposition to these requests.
