Implementation of the Home and Community Based Services Settings Rule


Date: June 20, 2014

Time: 02:00 PM Et - 03:30 PM ET

Type: Webinar

Sponsored by: NCOA and the Friday Morning Collaborative

Earlier this year, the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released a final rule and guidance on the requirements of characteristics for settings in Medicaid Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) programs operated under sections 1915(c), 1915(i), and 1915(k) of the Act.

The rule requires every state to develop and submit to CMS an implementation plan within the year. This process provides multiple opportunities for consumer stakeholder input.

This webinar will provide information about the rule and provide tools and resources for state advocates to assist with implementation.
