Waiver Renewal Assistance

Peter Burns assisted AHCCCS with their 2006 waiver renewal, particularly with budget neutrality. This included writing the waiver chapter on budget neutrality, creating the design approach, reviewing calculations, negotiating with CMS on the waiver and Terms & Conditions, and responding to CMS questions.

For AHCCCS’s 2001 waiver renewal, Mr. Burns performed these same functions as well as assisting in incorporating all uninsured citizens below 100% FPL (a state ballot initiative) into the waiver. Arizona was the first state to gain approval through the HIFA waiver process.
