The future of MTP

This year, 2021, is the fifth and final year of Washington State’s current Section 1115 Medicaid demonstration waiver, called the Medicaid Transformation Project (MTP). MTP ends December 31, 2021.

In January 2021, the Health Care Authority (HCA) requested an extension, which would create a sixth year for MTP. If Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approves Washington State’s extension, MTP will continue from January 1–December 31, 2022. HCA anticipates that CMS will approve this request toward the end of this year.

Beyond our current waiver and possible extension, Washington State is also pursuing an MTP renewal. We hope to continue our MTP initiatives and activities, which are supporting people across Washington. If approved by CMS, a renewal will create a new waiver period from January 1, 2023–December 31, 2027.
