Since 1982 the State of Arizona has amended or renewed the demonstration several times with CMS approval. On March 13, 2006 the State of Arizona submitted a "Waiver Renewal Proposal" for its entire 1115 demonstration. The extension was granted for five years by CMS and begun operating in October 27, 2006 through September 30, 2011.
