Medicaid Transformation

Medicaid Transformation waiver — moving Healthier Washington forward

Washington has submitted an application to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for a five-year 1115 Medicaid waiver demonstration.

The Medicaid Transformation waiver has three initiatives that will make it possible for us to invest in:

  • Building better systems for delivering whole-person care through community and health system partnerships.
  • Expanding options for how we serve those with long-term care needs.
  • Providing our most vulnerable populations with the supports they need to get and stay healthy.

These investments will help us spend our Medicaid dollars more wisely and lead to a healthier Washington.

The links below will take you to additional information about each of the waiver application's three initiatives:
