CLASP Supports Connecticut’s Substance Use Disorder Demonstration Application

CLASP submitted comments in support of Connecticut’s Section 1115 waiver demonstration, which would provide pre-release Medicaid services to individuals leaving incarceration and improve continuity of care into the community upon release and during re-entry. CLASP appreciates Connecticut’s broad definition of qualifying conditions to include intellectual disability, acquired brain injuries, pregnancy and post-partum status, and chronic illnesses. If approved, the proposed demonstration would promote health equity and address the health needs of Connecticut’s most vulnerable populations.
