Both Waivers expire on June 30, 2015; however, the federal Centers for Medicare and

website at  In addition, individuals
unable to access the Internet may view copies of the two renewal applications at their
local Independent Service Coordination agency.

The public comment period is for 30 days from May 29, 2015 through June 28, 2015.
