Indiana Statewide HCBS Transition Plan

Indiana

“Effective March 17, 2014, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have issued regulations that define the settings in which it is permissible for states to pay for Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS). The purpose of these regulations is to ensure that individuals receive Medicaid HCBS in settings that are integrated and that support full access to the greater community. This includes opportunities to seek employment and work in competitive and integrated settings, engage in community life, control personal resources, and receive services in the community to the same degree as individuals who do not receive HCBS. These changes will maximize the opportunities for participants in HCBS programs to have access to the benefits of community living and to receive services in the most integrated setting. The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) has created a Statewide Transition Plan to assess compliance with the HCBS Rule and identify strategies and timelines for coming into compliance with the new rule as it relates to all FSSA HCBS programs. States must be in full compliance with the federal requirements by the time frame approved in the Statewide Transition Plan but no later than March 17, 2019.”
