Illinois Statewide HCBS Transition Plan


“On January 16, 2014 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published final regulations that pertain to Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) programs, including 1915 (c) , 1915 (i) and 1915(k) as described in 42 CFR 441.301(c) (4) (5) and 441.710(a) (1) (2). The final regulations went into effect on March 17, 2014 and align home and community-based setting requirements across three Medicaid authorities. The regulations require states operating a 1915 (c) waiver (s) to develop a Statewide Transition Plan which describes the strategies for coming into compliance with the new regulations. Illinois’ assessment of its current HCBS Waiver programs in relation to the new regulations and the remediation strategies necessary to ensure full compliance with the new rules are outlined in the Statewide Transition Plan”
