I know we haven't posted an update in awhile so I wanted to make sure everyone had the most up to date info.....

Temporary Changes to Home and Community Based Services To Be Extended Through Public Health Emergency

During the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE), AHCCCS has implemented more than 47 programmatic changes in order to ensure access to care for members and to maintain the ongoing viability of its provider network.

The status of each of those requests is posted in the “Status of AHCCCS Emergency Authority Requests” document on this AHCCCS web page.

Although the Home and Community Based programmatic changes were due to expire March 12, 2021, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has issued assurance that the authority to continue these changes (known as Appendix K) will be extended for Arizona at least until the PHE ends.

A formal approval of Arizona's Appendix K extension will be posted on the AHCCCS website upon receipt, and, in the interim, all Appendix K flexibilities will be continued.

So true!!

COVID-19 Flexibilities

Throughout the COVID-19 public health emergency, AHCCCS has allowed specific flexibilities related to Arizona’s Medicaid waiver that were approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and published on the AHCCCS website. Some of these flexibilities, particularly those in the Appendix K section, were originally scheduled to end on March 12, 2021.

AHCCCS has requested the flexibilities listed in Appendix K be tied to the public health emergency, which would allow them to continue to be implemented for the duration of the COVID-19 public health emergency. AHCCCS expects that CMS will approve this request.

In the meantime, the Division intends to continue current COVID-19 services flexibilities. The Division will communicate more information as it becomes available.

Here is an update on the extension of parents being providers. This is from our Public Affairs Department.

We’ve heard directly from AHCCCS that they are still waiting for CMS approval to their request to extend this flexibility to the end of the federal public health emergency - their staff is not sure when they will hear back from CMS and it is possible approval won’t come in as timely a way as we would like. The federal government is traditionally pretty slow, but the transition to the Biden Administration means that many agencies are onboarding and off boarding staff as well, which slows things down further. Not helpful to the folks on the ground who have to make decisions and communicate to people. We’ll get an update out as soon as we have it : )

I know its not what everyone wants to hear as we are approaching the deadline of March 12th, 2021, but at least its still being worked on. We will send out an update as soon as we hear anything!!!!

In case anyone is wondering what the hiccup is, regarding Provider Agencies and new Providers ...

Central Registry, at DDD, has been down for over a week ... they're not able to process any new background checks for us ...

That means that NO AGENCIES are able to hire new Direct Service Professionals because DDD requires that a Central Registry Request needs to be approved prior to hiring ... and they're not operational ...

Just an FYI to parents / guardians who might be wondering what's going on ....
