New York State HCBS Settings Transition Plan

New York

~~“DOH operates the following 1915(c), waivers in addition to overseeing our sister agencies and offices that operate other 1915(c) waivers as the State's Medicaid agency.
•Long Term Home Health Care Program Waiver2
•Nursing Home Transition and Diversion (NHTD) Waiver
•Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Waiver
•Care at Home Waivers I and II

In addition, as noted above, New York State offers significant home and community-based LTSS through our Medicaid state plan, as well as under the NY Partnership Plan 1115 Demonstration Waiver. The rule does not apply to state plan services outside of 1915(i) and 1915(k) authorities. However, CMS has indicated that it expects New York State to address the application of the HCB Settings rule to all HCBS provided through its 1115 Demonstration in this Statewide Transition Plan. Finally, New York State implemented the Community First Choice Option (CFCO) – 1915(k), with an effective date of July 1, 2015, with the understanding that such services would not be provided in congregate or provider-owned settings until these options are assessed and remediated, if necessary, through the Statewide Transition Plan period.”
