Subject: Extension of Appendix K Emergency Rules
Date: January 14, 2021
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently provided a mechanism for states to extend Section 1915(c) Appendix K emergency flexibilities beyond the current one-year approval period which was set to end on January 26, 2021. The ADvantage waiver program, working in conjunction with the Oklahoma Health Care Authority, applied for this extension.
Today we received notification that the request to extend Appendix K emergency flexibilities was approved by CMS and may now be extended through the duration of the current public health emergency.
Please submit any questions regarding this information through the Provider Question chapter in Harmony.
