Background Information

Federal rule requires States to submit individual, waiver-specific transition plans to meet new Federal criteria for all relevant HCBS programs under 1915(c), 1915(k), and 1915(i) when the state amends that waiver. These transition plans will outline how the final rule will be implemented over the next 5 years for individuals waivers and will provide assessment, strategies, and timelines for meeting the requirements of the new rules.

The Department of Health Care Policy and Financing will be submitting amendments for six out of the seven Long Term Services and Supports waivers to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on September 30, 2014.
