The future of MTP

2021 was the fifth year of Washington State’s Section 1115 Medicaid demonstration waiver, called the Medicaid Transformation Project (MTP). In early 2021, our state requested a one-year extension due to disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved our request, and MTP will continue for a sixth year.

MTP now ends December 31, 2022, unless CMS authorizes additional renewals/extensions.

Washington State is pursuing an MTP renewal. We hope to continue our MTP initiatives and activities, which are supporting people across Washington, beyond 2022. If approved by CMS, a renewal will create a new MTP period from January 1, 2023–December 31, 2027.
