Health Advocate: HCBS State Transition Plans & Implementation Updates

Executive Summary

In this month’s Health Advocate, we assess CMS regulations that define the home and community-based services (HCBS) delivery system in Medicaid. Two years after regulations were finalized, we are entering a critical phase of the transition planning when states begin to post results from site-specific assessments and submit those results to CMS for approval. It is essential that we ensure the regulations are implemented effectively, so all individuals who rely on Medicaid HCBS receive services in settings that offer them full access to the benefits of community living.
