CMS is pleased to approve Arkansas’s Medicaid 1115 Waiver application. Arkansas and CMS worked together to find flexibilities that gave the state the tools to build a program that worked for them and their residents. We appreciate the collaboration with Arkansas throughout the process and applaud their commitment to providing Arkansans with access to high, quality health coverage.
Arkansas came up with its own plan to expand Medicaid using the private-insurance market, and Secretary Sebelius and her team worked to ensure that we had the flexibility to make that plan a reality," Governor Beebe said. "Our actions have drawn positive attention from across the country, and now we will focus on getting this insurance to the Arkansans who need it to lead healthier, more productive lives. Hopefully, this bipartisan, intergovernmental achievement can be an example for Congress as the government shutdown looms.
It’s a big day for Arkansas. It marks the end of a very long and intense process following Governor Beebe’s signing of the Health Care Independence Act in April. There is, of course, much more work to do as we move into implementation and the next phases of the program. But today we’re taking the time to celebrate the approval of this unique and innovative program that will provide much-needed health care for hundreds of thousands of Arkansans. We would not be where we are today without the extraordinary efforts of our staff and the team in Washington who helped us through this process. They did a tremendous amount of work in a very short time to make this happen.
