North Carolina Home and Community Based Services Final Rule Transition Plan

North Carolina

“North Carolina’s transition plan for waiver beneficiaries provides individuals with access to their communities. Among the benefits are opportunities to seek employment and to work competitively within an integrated work force, to select services and supports and who provides these, and to have the same access to community life as others. It is our intention that the unique life experiences of and personal outcomes sought by each individual will inform his or her home and community-based services and supports, and that measures of overall system performance will reflect this commitment. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)’s plan will clearly describe the actions that will be taken to ensure, by 2018, initial and ongoing compliance with the HCBS Final Rule. The DHHS will work in partnership with and support Local Management Entities-Managed Care Organizations (LME-MCOs) and Local Lead Agencies1 in meeting the HCBS Final Rule’s intent; however, the state is ultimately responsible for the review, modification and monitoring of any laws, rules, regulations, standards, policies agreements, contracts and licensing requirements necessary to ensure that North Carolina’s HCBS settings comply with HCBS Final Rule requirements.”
