On November 1, 2017, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved the program to provide Medicaid coverage for adults without dependent children earning up to 5% of the federal poverty level (FPL) who are:
- Chronically homeless
- Involved in the justice system through probation, parole, or court ordered treatment needing substance abuse or mental health treatment
- Needing substance abuse treatment or mental health treatment
Dependent on funding, an estimated 4,000-6,000 adults will be covered. The program will begin enrolling newly eligible members immediately. The program will continue accepting applications and new enrollees until further notice. Once capacity of enrollment and allocated funding is reached, the program may close enrollment.
