HealthChoice Monitoring and Evaluation Activities

​Effective January 1, 2022, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved and renewed Maryland's §1115 demonstration waiver, known as HealthChoice, for a five-year period. This page will serve as a centralized location for documents and activities related to HealthChoice monitoring and evaluation.

Background​​

​​​Per the terms of the H​ealthChoice Demonstration Renewal as directed by 42 CFR 431.420(c), Maryland must conduct a post-award forum within six (6) months of implementing the demonstratio​n and annually thereafter. The forum is intended to provide the public with the opportunity to offer meaningful comment on the progress of the demonstration.

Per the Standard Terms and Conditions set by CMS, the state shall post the final approved Evaluation Design, Interim Evaluation Report, and Summative Evaluation Report on the state Medicaid website within thirty (30) days of approval by CMS.
