Feds Approve N.J. Medicaid Waiver

TRENTON — New Jersey would have more freedom to spend money to keep senior citizens and people with developmental disabilities living at home and out of institutions under a revised Medicaid program the Obama administration approved Wednesday.
Three Christie administration cabinet members Thursday morning outlined the much-anticipated “comprehensive Medicaid waiver” that will give the state more flexibility in how the $10 billion state and federally funded program serves more than 1 million poor, disabled and elderly people, and supports hospitals.
