Medicaid Transformation

The Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) and the State of Washington have signed a contract for implementation of a 5-year Medicaid Transformation (formerly known as the Waiver).

The Medicaid Transformation includes three major initiatives:

  • Initiative 1: Transformation through Accountable Communities of Health
  • Initiative 2: Long-term services and supports
  • Initiative 3: Supportive housing and supported employment

Initiative 1, which will be supported by about $1.125B of the Transformation’s total $1.5B in funding over 5 years, will build incentives for providers who are committed to changing how we deliver care.
