~~“On July 1 1, 2018, Rhode Island submitted an application for a five-year renewal of its current section 1115 demonstration "Rhode Island Comprehensive Demonstration," along with approval of modifications of the demonstration that would apply during the extension period. The purpose of the state's proposal is to support the continuation of Rhode Island's Medicaid program and to add new programs discussed below. The state will continue its home and community-based services (HCBS) component to provide services similar to those authorized under sections 1915(c) and 1915(i) of the Act to individuals who need HCBS either as an alternative to institutionalization or otherwise based on medical need. Effective January 1, 2019, the existing services will continue under the demonstration and be obligated to adhere to HCBS guidelines, policies, and reporting procedures. Any new HCBS requests the state would like to implement after January 1, 2019, will be authorized undersections 1915(c) and 1915(i).”
