On April 29, 2022, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Department of the Treasury informed officials in Georgia that the state’s waiver under Section 1332 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA)—known as the Georgia Access Model—is at risk of being suspended. Georgia has until July 28, 2022 to submit a corrective action plan that explains how state officials will bring the waiver into compliance with federal statutory requirements. If Georgia fails to provide this information, HHS and Treasury will suspend implementation and Georgians would continue to enroll in marketplace coverage through HealthCare.gov. Alternatively, Georgia can formally challenge this determination.
