South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (SCDHHS) Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Statewide Transition Plan

South Carolina

The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule on Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) establishing certain requirements for services that are provided through Medicaid waivers. There are specific requirements for where home and community-based services are received which will be referred to as the “settings requirements.” CMS required that each state submit a “Statewide Transition Plan” by March 17, 2015. The Statewide Transition Plan outlines how the state will come into conformance and compliance with the HCBS Rule settings requirements. States must come into full compliance with the HCBS Rule requirements by March 17, 2019. The South Carolina Department of Health and Human services (SCDHHS) has branded this effort for HCBS with the tagline: Independent•Integrated•Individual. This tagline was developed because home and community-based services help our members be independent, be integrated in the community, and are based on what is best for the individual.
