Background

Recent waiver requests reflect a growing emphasis on policy changes that encourage personal responsibility and self-reliance for adult Medicaid beneficiaries. As this approach has significant implications to Medicaid operations, it is essential states begin now to develop the checklist of changes required to implement these new policies.
