Approval of the HCBS Waiver Settings Statewide Transition Plan (STP)

Iowa

“The state is responsible for the development and implementation of a Statewide Transition Plan (STP) to ensure full compliance with the CMS regulations. A proposed STP was posted for public comment in February 2016. The IME reviewed and responded to the public comments in March and on April 1, 2016, submitted a draft STP to CMS that incorporated the public comments and feedback received. Over the past several months the IME has been working with CMS to make technical corrections and clarifications to the submitted transition plan. On August 10, 2016, the IME received notice from CMS of the initial approval of the STP. The approved STP and the CMS initial approval letter are available on the DHS web page, Waiver Draft Transition Plans and the Statewide Transition Plan.”
