The new federal home and community-based services (HCBS) regulations offer an opportunity for states and stakeholders to improve Medicaid long-term services and supports for older adults. At the state and national level, the transition process to comply with the regulations is initiating thoughtful discussions about what it means to provide quality, community-based care, in a variety of settings.
Justice in Aging has reviewed state transition proposals with an eye toward implications for older adults participating in adult day services, living in assisted living communities, and receiving other Medicaid-funded HCBS. In this webinar, we provided an overview of key areas that emerged in states’ initial transition plans and lay out recommendations for states and stakeholders.
Consumers and their advocates have an opportunity to participate in all stages of the transition plan process; the webinar provided insight into particular areas of interest for older adults. Justice in Aging issued an issue brief to accompany the webinar, click to read here.
