Public Comment Opportunity Regarding the HCBS California Statewide Transition Plan

The California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is developing a revised Statewide Transition Plan (STP) that will be submitted to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in October 2016.  The STP describes how the State will come into compliance with new Federal Home and Community-Based (HCB) Settings Final Rule that became effective March 17, 2014.  These regulations are CMS 2249-F and CMS 2296-F, which affect 1115, 1915(c), 1915(i) and 1915(k) Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers and State Plan programs.  All 1115, 1915(c), 1915(i), and 1915(k) HCBS waivers and State Plan programs must be in full compliance with the new Federal rules by March 17, 2019.

DHCS invites all interested parties to review the revised STP, including the CBAS Transition Plan, and provide public input.  The 30-day public comment period will begin on August 29, and ends on September 29, 2016.  Public comments on the STP should be submitted via the STP Public Comment Template
