Program Design Changes During the COVID-19 Response

One of the many challenges associated with the coronavirus is that direct care may not be able to be provided as it normally is. Applied Self-Direction created this resource for programs considering program design changes in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The document discusses program flexibilities to consider, filing an Appendix K: Emergency Preparedness and Response to modify a 1915(c) waiver, filing an 1135 Waiver, creating 1115 demonstrations for experimental or pilot programs, and filing Medicaid State Plan Amendments to modify existing Medicaid State Plan services.
