MDHHS today is making the request to the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to temporarily waive a number of Medicaid requirements.

Michigan is asking the federal government to allow its Medicaid program to:

  • Suspend the need for new prior authorization requests for medical services and extending existing prior authorization agreements.
  • Streamline enrollment for Medicaid providers and allowing approved out-of-state providers to begin serving beneficiaries quickly.
  • Allow telephonic healthcare services as part of telehealth/telemedicine delivery.
  • Waive quantity limits on durable medical equipment, medical supplies and pharmaceuticals.
  • Remove limitations on providers to allow qualified physician assistants and nurses to treat COVID-19 patients.
