States Use Appendix K and Emergency Waivers to Support Home- and Community-Based Services in Response to COVID-19

This interactive map, supported by The John A. Hartford Foundation, tracks each state’s new flexibilities in modified 1915 (c) and 1115 waivers and includes information about flexibilities in COVID-19 Public Health Emergency Demonstration 1115 waivers. To help Medicaid enrollees get the long-term services and supports they need during the COVID-19 crisis, states use waivers and amendments to incorporate more flexibility into their programs. Many states use these tools to modify their home- and community-based services for older adults and their family caregivers during the crisis.
