SHA's Commentary on Medicaid and Housing
Please read SHA's commentary to NJ Medicaid (Department of Human Services, Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services - DMAHS) on its renewal application for Medicaid waiver services which allow the state flexibility in delivery of Medicaid.
SHA is pleased that the state has seen fit to include housing related services in its renewal application.
Our comments are designed to support these services and to urge the state to request additional opportunities of the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for use of Medicaid funding in supportive housing.
