Limited Capacity seats available

New regulations restrict Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services funding to settings that are truly "community-based." But how are states determining which settings are, and are not, community-based? This talk will provide a general overview of the new rule and discuss assessment methods that states have used to determine whether settings are offering adequate opportunities to exercise self-determination and participate in community life. The presentation will involve discussion of the benefits and drawbacks of different assessment methods and information on how professionals can get involved.

Learning Objectives: 

1. Understand the general effect of the HCBS settings rule
2. Locate their state's transition plan
3. Identify possible issues with how their states plan to assess compliance with the settings rule
4. Advocate for better compliance with the new rule
