SDS Training - Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Settings Self - Assessment Survey
~~“Join SDS staff for a training about the Settings rules, the self - assessment survey, and what Program Administrators need to know and do. This training is for Administrators or those applying to administrate: Supported Employment, Residential Habilitation: Group home, Residential Habilitation: Family Home Habilitation, Residential Habilitation: Supported Living, Congregate Meals, Adult Day Services, Day Habilitation, and Residential Supported Living.
SDS has been working with CMS and providers on a Transition Plan to bring Alaska into settings compliance since 2014. CMS requires all states to comply with new settings rules per 42 CFR 441.301(c)(4)-(5) . The purpose of these changes is to make sure that states use Home and Community Based funding for programs that truly work to integrate Alaskans with disabilities and/or who are frail elders into the community at every opportunity.
Training is offered as a video:
