On March 15, 2014, the new federal home and community-based services (HCBS) rule went into effect, and the countdown clock for states to craft a transition plan began running. Six months later, states are in varying stages of stakeholder engagement, transition plan drafting, commenting and review.
The transition plan process presents a steep learning curve for all: states must confront difficult questions about the HCBS delivery system, and stakeholders are challenged to provide constructive input for state assessments.
At this six month-marker, while many questions remain, early lessons are beginning to emerge. To learn more about the process, this webinar featured insight from consumer advocates in three states crafting a transition plan under the HCBS rule.
State representatives, advocates, consumers, and stakeholders are welcome to join this free webinar to learn more about how states are working through the HCBS rule transition plan drafting process.
