HCBS Settings Final Rule

On January 10, 2014 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) settings final rule (CMS-2249-P2). The final regulation addresses several sections of Medicaid law under which states may use federal Medicaid funds to pay for HCBS. The rule establishes requirements for the qualities of settings that are eligible for reimbursement for Medicaid HCBS provided under sections 1915(c), 1915(i), and 1915(k).
