    States have had the option for years to apply for 1115 waiver requests whereby the state may request to modify its Medicaid program in any manner it pleases.  The block was that the 1115 waiver request had to be approved and most were not, since the Medicaid program asserts its clients are the patients. not the states or insurance carriers.
    For those interested in the 1115 Medicaid waiver programs, here are a couple of links:

    SC has made a series of proposals over the years requesting modifications to its Medicaid program,
