This webinar has ended. ANCOR members may still register to receive a recording when available.


CMS has just issued its final HCBS rule, which includes the new definition of home and community based settings for purposes of Section 1915 (c) Medicaid waivers and 1915 (i) and 1915 (k) state plans. This webinar will cover the highlights of the new rule, which has significant implications for providers. Topics covered will include:

  • Time frame for implementation

  • Responsibilities of states

  • Implications for provider-controlled housing, including criteria which must be met in order for provider-controlled housing to be considered an HCB setting 

  • Next steps in ANCOR collaboration with CMS to refine key elements before implementation

This webinar is being provided, free of charge, as an exclusive benefit to ANCOR members.
