Hard-hit Washington state gets CMS greenlight for Medicaid coronavirus waiver
from Healthcare Dive
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) has approved Washington state's request to expand its Medicaid program to combat COVID-19. With the recent okay, CMS is waiving requirements that doctors get prior authorization from insurers for prescriptions or treatment, and allowing Washington to move more quickly to expand Medicaid payments and services related to the virus. CMS did not approve a request to expand Medicaid to a greater number of uninsured Washington residents.
