New Hampshire HCBS Transition Plan

New Hampshire

In January 2014, the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) finalized regulations
that require Medicaid-funded Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) possess particular qualities in residential and nonresidential settings.  All states are required to demonstrate how their HCBS programs comply with the new federal HCBS rules. The purpose of this draft Transition Framework is to ensure that in New Hampshire individuals receiving HCBS are integrated in and have access to supports in the community, including opportunities to seek employment, work in competitive integrated settings, engage in community life, and control personal resources. Overall, the Transition Plan provides 
a roadmap for how the State will assure that individuals receiving HCBS have the same degree of access as individuals not receiving Medicaid HCBS. 
This Transition Plan outlines the proposed process that New Hampshire will be utilizing to ensure alignment with the HCBS requirements.
