The Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) is seeking public comment for new Medicaid program features, including a supportive housing and employment benefit (“High Needs Supports”) targeted to certain high need Medicaid enrollees, through the State’s Section 1115 Medicaid demonstration. This benefit will assist Medicaid-enrolled individuals with complex physical or behavioral health needs or who need assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), and who are at risk for housing and employment instability, in obtaining and sustaining stable housing and employment in order to improve quality of life and health outcomes.
DMAS welcomes public comment on the entire High Needs Supports benefit delivery system design.

Instructions For Public Comment Submission:
The draft High Needs Support Policy Paper is now available on the DMAS Website for public comment until November 11, 2020.
