New York’s People First Waiver  will be an agreement with the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) that will “waive” certain Medicaid rules so that New York can continue to receive federal Medicaid funding for services while it develops and tests system improvements that would not be possible under traditional Medicaid rules. Demonstrating the effectiveness of the planned improvements will be an important part of the People FirstWaiver.
