Statewide Transition Plan

1915(c) and 1915(i) Home and Community-Based (HCB) Setting Transition Plan

On Jan. 16, 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule, effective March 17, 2014, which amends the requirements for qualities of home and community-based (HCB) settings. These requirements reflect CMS’s intent that individuals receive services and supports in settings that are integrated in and support full access to the greater community. The final rule requires the use of a person-centered planning process to develop a participant/beneficiary’s annual Plan for Services and Supports (PSS). A summary of the requirements included in the final rule is provided below. The complete set of federal regulations for the final regulations can be found on the Home and Community Based Services webpage on the CMS website.
