On April 16, 2020, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) submitted its Section 1135 Medicaid Waiver to CMS.  The waiver submission was made possible once Governor Evers signed the Wisconsin COVID-19 Bill into law on April 15, 2020.  The waiver submitted by DHS seeks to allow providers to get payments for services provided in mobile testing sites, temporary shelters or other non-traditional facilities and suspend cost-sharing for all program recipients during the COVID-19 public health emergency.  Prior submission by DHS was prevented by existing state law that required Joint Finance Committee approval prior to submission.   Wisconsin is one the last states to submit a Section 1135 Medicaid Waiver.
