On January 26, 2023, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved California’s request to amend the California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM) Section 1115 demonstration. On April 17, 2023, CMS released a State Medicaid Director Letter (SMDL), “Opportunities to Test Transition-Related Strategies to Support Community Reentry and Improve Care Transitions for Individuals Who Are Incarcerated.” The following tool can be used as part of a state’s discussions with CMS regarding a requested demonstration’s proposed features as compared with the reentry requirements outlined in the SMDL and California’s section 1115 demonstration approval.
