Kentucky HCBS Transition Plan
State Policies & Initiatives:Medicaid & Employment
On March 17, 2014, updated Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) final rules became effective in the Federal Register for 1915(c) waivers, 1915(i) state plan services, and 1915(k) community first choice state plan option . As they pertain to 1915(c) waivers, these rules include requirements for several areas of HCBS: all residential and non-residential settings, provider- owned residential settings, person-centered planning process, service plan requirements, and conflict-free case management.
The goal of the HCBS final rules is to improve the services rendered to HCBS participants and to maximize the opportunities to receive services in integrated settings and realize the benefits of community living. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is allowing five years (until March 17, 2019) for states and providers to transition into compliance with the all settings and provider-owned settings requirements.
