State Policies & Initiatives:Medicaid & Employment
The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Senior and Disabilities Services (SDS) submits this transition plan in accordance with CFR 42 §441.301(c)(6). The state process leading to development of the plan included analysis of all settings where home and community-based services are provided under the Alaska’s 1915(c) home and community-based waiver programs. This plan describes the three components of SDS settings evaluation activities:
Part 1) the efforts made by SDS to inform and educate providers and other stakeholders about the changes to federal regulations, and to gain insight into how the changes will impact service delivery;
Part 2) the process used to determine the extent to which existing state regulations and practices encompass the requirements for home and community-based settings, and the actions taken to assess the home and community-based characteristics of the locations where services are delivered currently; and
Part 3) the state plan to achieve compliance with federal regulations.
