Home & Community Based Services (HCBS) Final Regulation Information

The final HCBS regulations set forth requirements from Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for several Medicaid authorities under which states may provide home and community-based long-term services and supports. The intent of this regulation is to ensure that that individuals receiving services and supports through Medicaid's HCBS programs have full access to the benefits of community living and are able to receive services in the most integrated setting possible. To increase understanding of the regulation, and the process of implementation, the Long-Term Support Services (LTSS) unit of the Division of Health Care Financing and Policy (DHCFP) will post information from CMS, presentations and comments from the DHCFP's Public Workshops, and other relevant material on this webpage.
