CMS Announces Extension for States Under Medicaid Home- and Community-Based Settings Rule

May 19, 2017

In case you missed it, The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced a three-year extension for state Medicaid programs to meet the Home- and Community-Based (HCBS) settings requirements for settings operating before March 17, 2017. States now have until March 17, 2022, to demonstrate compliance for the final rule. See the announcement from CMS.

This extension is in response to states' request for more time to demonstrate compliance with the regulatory requirements and ensure compliance activities are collaborative, transparent, and timely.
