The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services last week approved an 1115 Medicaid waiver for New York to create a streamlined model of care for children with complex health care needs. The state expects the model to expand Medicaid coverage and access for more than 6,000 children with behavioral health and home- and community-based service needs. "Expanding coverage of community-based and at-home health care services will allow children throughout the state to receive necessary services while remaining at home and in their communities," said New York State Health Commissioner Howard Zucker, M.D.
