Changes to GAP Eligibility

April 07, 2015

As you know, the 2015 General Assembly session paid a significant amount of attention to Virginia’s GAP Waiver. They did add a budget amendment related to eligibility criteria and the Governor recently signed the budget including that budget language.

 DMAS has placed on the GAP webpage of the DMAS website the amendment to the waiver application with CMS reflecting that eligibility change requirement. Here is the link to the GAP page, http://www.dmas.virginia.gov/Content_pgs/gap.aspx, and the amendment is the first item under “Announcements”.  At the end of the amendment is an attachment that has the budget amendment language. CMS requires that DMAS gives the public notice of any changes to the waiver.
