Georgia Department of Community Health Seeks Public Written Comments about Proposed Changes to COMP and NOW Waivers. Comments are due on or before December 14, 2020. Your voice is so important in this conversation and people are listening.  

The Comprehensive Supports Waiver (COMP) and New Options Waiver (NOW) Programs operate under the 1915c Medicaid Waiver authority which requires renewal every five years. The current approved COMP Waiver Program expires in 2021 and must be renewed by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) by April 1, 2021. While the NOW waiver will not expire on the same date, the waiver will be amended to incorporate all applicable changes for consistency. The change to maximum daily authorization does not apply to the NOW Program.
