DLC urges CMS not to approve Kentucky HEALTH
DLC and thousands of advocates nationwide have urged the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) not to approve the Medicaid 1115 waiver and amendment, Kentucky HEALTH. Proposed “community engagement” and cost-sharing requirements, and punitive coverage disenrollment and lockouts do not promote Medicaid program objectives. They would make it harder for low-income Kentuckians with diabetes to access lifesaving insulin and other needed care, and roll back Kentucky’s progress under the original Medicaid expansion.
