[June 19, 2020] Indiana Extends Waivers for Long-Term Care Facilities

On June 18, 2020, the Indiana State Department of Health announced that it has extended all blanket waivers issued for long-term care facilities, including comprehensive care facilities and residential care facilities, for an additional ninety (90) day period.  Each blanket waiver is therefore effective through at least mid-September.  Updated charts summarizing the blanket waivers for comprehensive care facilities and residential care facilities issued to date and listing the new effective time period for each blanket waiver can be found below.

The federal Section 1135 waiver is also still currently in effect through July 26, 2020.  The national public health emergency may be extended, but even if it is permitted to expire in late July, HHS Secretary Azar has the authority to extend the Section 1135 waiver in sixty (60) day increments.  We will keep you updated on the Section 1135 waiver and any impact it may have on Indiana’s blanket waivers currently in effect.
