On April 2, 2020, Governor Brian P. Kemp and the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH) announced that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved Georgia’s section 1135 waiver request on the temporary checklist, granting the state a number of flexibilities for Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids® providers and members to combat the COVID-19 public health emergency.
On March 28, 2020, DCH submitted sections 1135 and 1115(a) waivers, along with two Appendix K plans to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This comprehensive set of requests, if approved, would provide the State of Georgia with a number of flexibilities for Medicaid and PeachCare for Kids® providers and members, as well as providers and families served by the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD).
