CMS Transition Plan: Employment and Day Services


“In January 2014, the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released new requirements for Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waivers administered by states. Essentially, the rule says that federal Medicaid funds no longer can be used to pay for waiver services in settings that isolate people, including institutions, and settings next to public institutions…DODD is working to develop new service models that promote community employment and integrated day services. These new services will ensure that all individuals, regardless of where they choose to receive services, will have opportunities to be involved in community-based activities.”

State Policies & Initiatives: 
  • Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
  • Medicaid Agencies
  • Home and Community Based Services (HCBS)
