New Guides on How New HCBS Rules Affect Adult Day Services and Assisted Living

November 23, 2016

Consumer Voice and Justice in Aging created two guides on how the Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) rules can be used to improve services for older persons. These guides are meant to assist state advocates as they develop "transition plans" to implement new federal rules and set policy in that state for 2019 and into the future. "Medicaid’s New Rule to Promote Independence and Choice for Persons Receiving HCBS" provides an overview of the rule, with a focus on HCBS for older persons. "Applying the New Federal HCBS Rules to Adult Day Centers" examines how the HCBS rules can improve services provided in those settings.
