Comments to CMS to maintain funding for MinnesotaCare

October 2017

MHA joined other Minnesota health care and human service organizations in urging the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to stop potential funding cuts to MinnesotaCare, the state’s Basic Health Plan (BHP) under the Affordable Care Act, in conjunction with the state’s 1332 waiver request for federal funding for a state-based reinsurance program.
