Montana HCBS Transition Plan

Montana

CMS has 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 in, and support full access to, the greater community.  This includes opportunities to engage in community life, control personal resources, receive services in the community, and, when appropriate, seek employment and work in competitive and integrated settings to the same degree as individuals who do not receive HCBS…
 
To assist states in making this transition, CMS has published guidance to provide further information about settings in which HCBS may or may not be allowed.  States will be allowed a maximum of five years to make the transition and must submit a transition plan to CMS within one year of the effective date of the rule
 
DPHHS submitted their transition plan late 2014
