DSRIP What's Next?

The DSRIP funding pool under the Texas 1115 Healthcare Transformation and Quality Improvement Program Waiver ends effective October 1, 2021. Section 37 of the waiver’s Special Terms and Conditions (STCs) required Texas to deliver a transition plan to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS); the final version was submitted on August 27, 2020 and approved by CMS.  The ten-year extension of the waiver through September 30, 2030 includes replacement programs for DSRIP to ensure that Texas maintains its focus on the Medicaid, Low-Income and Uninsured populations. For more information on the transition plan and the waiver extension, see https://hhs.texas.gov/laws-regulations/policies-rules/waivers/medicaid-1115-waiver/dsrip-transition
