Subscribe Click to subscribe

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published a final rule for Medicaid Home and Community Based Services effective March 17, 2014. The final rule requires states to ensure individuals receiving Medicaid home and community based services (HCBS) have the benefits of community living. 
Each state must review its policies, practices, and settings where HCBS are provided. Each state must have a plan for this review and making any changes needed. This plan is called the Statewide Transition Plan.
