TI Year 6 Program Requirements

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has extended AHCCCS’ 1115 Waiver Demonstration authority for a one-year period, through Sept. 30, 2022, while they continue to review the agency’s 2021-2026 Waiver renewal application. Find more information about the 1115 Waiver extension at the AHCCCS News and Updates webpage.

The extension grants authority to continue specific programs for a sixth year, including the Targeted Investments Program.

The TI Program “Year 6” extension, beginning October 1, 2021, will mirror TI Year 5:

The full 1115 Waiver renewal package, seeking to implement new initiatives such as coverage of traditional healing, Targeted Investments 2.0, and the Housing and Health Opportunities demonstration, was submitted to CMS on December 21, 2020 and will be subject to negotiation over the next 12 months. If approved, in part or in full, the next five-year waiver will run from Oct. 1, 2022 through Sept. 30, 2027.

The AHCCCS Targeted Investments website and TIPQIC website will provide more information on this update in the next few days. TIPQIC will continue technical assistance efforts, proactively engaging participants for data harmonization and developing the “Best Practice” guides. We look forward to continuing to support the important work you are doing to improve care for AHCCCS members.
