Do all MCO’s handle/assign the Innovations Waiver the same way?

Yes and No.  Slots are awarded to the all MCO’s at the same time based on the same formula from DHHS, when the money is appropriated by the General Assembly and approved by the Governor.  Each MCO will generally  hold a portion of their number for  “emergency” or guaranteed veteran allocations throughout the year.  The number of counties in the MCO and the formula for dispersal from DHHS may impact the speed and sequence in which each MCO makes their award.
