1115 Waiver Demonstration Project

Alaska’s 1115 Medicaid waiver, the Alaska Substance Use Disorder and Behavioral Health Program, was approved for the original demonstration period of January 1, 2019, through December 31, 2023. Alaska is submitting a renewal application, in accordance with CMS requirements, to continue this demonstration for another 5-year period, January 1, 2024-December 31, 2028. The waiver would continue to provide Alaska with the flexibility to offer a broad range of substance use disorder and behavioral health services and reduce the State’s reliance on crisis services.
