Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Waiver Request

As required by the 2011-13 state budget, the Department will submit a proposed Demonstration Project under section 1115 to waive the Maintenance of Effort (MOE) Waiver requirements established under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). As outlined in the state budget, if the Department does not receive approval of the waiver request before December 31, 2011, the Department is required to reduce income eligibility for non-disabled, non-pregnant adults to 133% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL), as allowed under federal law. Based on August 2011 caseloads, PPACA authorizes the state to dis-enroll 53,161 individuals (47,125 BadgerCare Plus parents and 6,036 BadgerCare Plus Core enrollees).
