The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services awarded Section 1135 waivers to 11 more states, bringing the national total to 13 states who can receive relief for their Medicaid programs.

While each waiver is specific to the state’s application, it generally provides relief from prior authorization and provider enrollment requirements, allows the suspension of certain nursing home pre-admission reviews and helps facilitate reimbursement to providers for care delivered in alternative settings due to facility evacuations
