Background

The Medicaid Transformation is a five-year project, based on an agreement between Washington State and the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The agreement provides up to $1.1 billion in federal investment funding for regional, health system improvements for Apple Health (Medicaid) clients. The project began in January 2017 and will end December 31, 2021. The anticipated changes will also support the state's general health systems improvements, which will benefit all Washington residents.
