FPI Voices Deep Concern Over State Proposal to Eliminate Retroactive Medicaid Eligibility

The state Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) held a public hearing this week on the state’s proposed amendment to Florida’s Medicaid 1115 Managed Medical Assistance Waiver.

Specifically, the amendment would modify Low Income Pool special terms and conditions and eliminate Retroactive Medicaid Eligibility (RME) for non-pregnant adults.

Anne Swerlick, the Institute’s health policy analyst and attorney, voiced FPI’s deep concerns on the proposal to end RME for thousands of Floridians, primarily seniors and adults with disabilities. The Institute submitted written testimony to AHCA Secretary Justin Senior.
