Renewing 1115 Transformation Waiver

By Admin | October 19, 2016

Rather than pursuing Medicaid expansion, the Texas State Health Committee has decided to prioritize the renewal of the 1115 Transformation Waiver, which was originally set to expire.

A commissioned study reported that 115 assisted with paying over half of unpaid medical  bills, dropping the amount from $8.7 billion to $4. It also claims that a Medicaid expansion would only offset hospital costs by $358 million.
