New Platform for Submissions of 1135 Waiver Request and Inquiries – Go Live

Posted Jan 12, 20211 min Read

In light of the volume of 1135 waiver requests associated with the COVID-19 PHE, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has developed a new web-based tool which will be live starting January 11, 2021, and will be located at CMS PHE Emergency Web Portal. This tool will assist Medicare/ Medicaid-participating providers and suppliers in submission of 1135 Waiver requests and inquiries. With very limited exception, the new web system should be used for all 1135 waivers request and /or PHE-related inquiries submitted on or after January 11, 2021. This policy memorandum outlines the new changes to submission of 1135 Waiver requests/ inquiries as well as resources available to providers and suppliers during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) and future emergency events.
