On April 16, 2021, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced its decision to rescind its earlier approval of Texas’ 1115 waiver extension on the grounds that CMS erred in approving a deviation from waiver public comment requirements. The extension would have continued existing waiver authorities, including billions of dollars for an uncompensated care pool, through September 2030. Texas’ waiver will now expire on September 30, 2022. Sellers Dorsey’s Senior Consultant Brian Dees provides an overview and discusses implications of the rescission in a brief recorded presentation.
