The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services today approved for five years an amended Medicaid demonstration for Arizona that adds innovative approaches to help eligible enrollees maintain stable housing.

“The housing services authorized in the demonstration can be expected to stabilize the housing situations of eligible Medicaid enrollees and thus increase the likelihood that they will keep receiving and benefitting from the Medicaid-covered services to which they are entitled,” the approval letter notes.
 
CMS last month approved Medicaid demonstrations for Oregon and Massachusetts that will test innovative approaches to help eligible enrollees maintain coverage and access social services, including evidenced-based nutritional assistance and clinically-tailored housing supports.
