Copy of HFA and NEHA speak out against New Hampshire's proposed Section 1115(a) Demonstration Waiver.

HFA and NEHA recently co-signed a letter to Henry Lipman, New Hampshire's Medicaid Director, to oppose New Hampshire's Section 1115(a) Demonstration Waiver request. New Hampshire is seeking permission from the Federal Government to waive retroactive eligibility for the Granite Advantage Health Care Program. The 1115 waiver proposes to have coverage become effective on the day the Medicaid enrollee applies for coverage. This would be a departure from the current three-month retroactive eligibility period in Medicaid.
