1115 Demonstration Waiver Amendment #2 – Centennial Care 2.0

 

The New Mexico Human Services Department (HSD), through the Medical Assistance Division (MAD), will hold public hearings and accept public comments on the Medicaid health care program known as Centennial Care 2.0 and changes to the program being considered as part of the amendment to the Centennial Care federal waiver proposed to be effective July 1, 2021. Comments will be accepted until 5:00 pm MST on Sunday, January 31, 2021. HSD is seeking federal authority to amend the 1115 Demonstration Waiver – Centennial Care 2.0 (Project Number 11W-00285/6) to make the following changes:

  1. Expand the Medicaid program toward a more integrated model of behavioral health care delivery by providing Medicaid reimbursement for extended IMD stays for individuals with Serious Mental Illness/Severe Emotional Disturbance (SMI/SED) in residential and inpatient Institutions for Mental Disease (IMD) settings;
  1. Establish High Fidelity Wraparound (HFW) as an intensive care coordination approach for children and youth who have high intensity needs;
  1. Establish a Primary Care Graduate Medical Education (GME) expansion funding mechanism designed to develop new and/or expanded GME programs focusing on the specialists of General Psychiatry, Family Medicine, General Pediatrics, and General Internal Medicine; and
  1. Expand coverage of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines, to the extent not covered by the federal government during the period of Centennial Care 2.0 demonstration and its administration to individuals who have limited benefit plan coverage including Family Planning Category of Eligibility (COE), Emergency Medical Services for Aliens (EMSA), individuals covered under the COVID-19 uninsured population (FFCRA) and also those receiving only Pregnancy – related services.

The requested amendment will impact the currently approved waiver authorities, expenditure authorities, and Special Terms and Conditions (STCs) for the period between July 1, 2021 and December 31, 2023.

Important Dates

The Department will hold two public hearings to receive comments about the draft amendment waiver.  The public hearings will be held to receive comments about the draft amendment waiver as follows:
