similarities between the Kentucky 1115 Waiver and the Utah 1115 Waiver, state officials
in Utah expect the Utah expansion plan, sponsored earlier this year, to be
approved and implemented.
distinction between Kentucky and Utah is that Utah relies on work requirements
to increase the number of people covered, while Kentucky sought to shrink
services through its community engagement restrictions. Tom Hudachko, a
spokesman for the Utah Department of Health, said the department will monitor
CMS’s response to the court ruling, and stands prepared to modify Utah’s waiver
request if the federal government issues new guidance.
