Subject: Extension of Appendix K Emergency Rules
Date: December 30, 2020
CMS has 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. CMS is allowing for an extension of Appendix K that will last until the end of the declared public health emergency.
The ADvantage waiver program is working with the Oklahoma Health Care Authority to apply for this extension. We will provide updated information as it becomes available.
Please submit any questions regarding this information through the Provider Question chapter in Harmony.
