Florida HCBS Transition Plan
State Policies & Initiatives:Medicaid & Employment
In January 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule for home and community-based programs. The new rule contains requirements that ensure persons who receive Medicaid home and community-based services do so from providers who:
- Help them to be active in the community;
- Provide a home-like environment if a person lives in a group home, assisted living facility or adult family care home; and
- Enable them to make personal choices.
Additionally, the rule requires the Agency to provide an opportunity for the public to comment on its transition plan and any changes the state proposes to its home and community-based waivers and state plan program.
