California Healthline: CMS Gives States Until 2022 To Meet Medicaid Standards Of Care (5/24/2017) The Trump administration has extended the deadline that requires states to meet Medicaid standards of care from 2019 to 2022. Justice in Aging’s Eric Carlson says that even with the extension there is still a lot of work to be done to bring states into compliance. “The state is going to have to pick up the pace to meet the even more relaxed deadlines. Even the current timeline doesn’t give us much margin for error.” The federal standards require states to provide beneficiaries with access to community life participation and ensure they have more housing options besides a nursing home.
