New federal Medicaid rules, for the first time, seek to ensure Medicaid HCBS is provided in settings that are truly integrated with the broader community. The specifics of the new standards, however, remain to be determined by individual states. Consumers, advocates and other stakeholders need to understand transition issues including the federal standards, what qualifies as HCBS, protections needed, consumer rights and service planning requirements.
Stakeholder involvement and advocacy will be critical as state Medicaid programs transition through implementation of the new rules. For many states with waiver programs, the deadlines for submitting transition plans will be coming up this year. Throughout the transition process, both the states and the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) must accept and consider recommendations from consumers and other stakeholders.
This webinar and a new NSCLC guide to the new rules will provide consumer advocates and other stakeholders with a clear explanation of the rules and share guidance for state engagement. Advocates, state policymakers, national advocates, and regulators are encouraged to attend and learn about what the rule means for residential settings, service planning, and the community-integration transition process.
