Section 1115 Waiver – In 1995, Delaware received approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to implement the Diamond State Health Plan waiver. Under this waiver, Delaware implemented a statewide mandatory Medicaid managed care program and expanded eligibility to low-income individuals with incomes up to 100 percent of the federal poverty level (FPL). The waiver was renewed in 2007.
