Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Program Transition

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services recently published a new set of rules for the delivery of Home and Community Based Services through Medicaid waiver programs. Through these rules, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services aim to improve the experience of individuals in these programs by enhancing access to the community, promoting the delivery of services in more integrated settings, and expanding the use of person-centered planning. 

In response, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is developing a statewide transition plan to bring its waiver programs into compliance with the new regulations while continuing to provide vital services and supports to Michigan citizens. The Department is committed to an inclusive process partnering with people receiving services, their allies, health care providers, and other organizations to create a transition plan that serves the best interests of the people of Michigan while also meeting requirements from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
