HFS releases draft of statewide transition plan for home and community-based services program

The Department of Healthcare and Family Services released a tentative statewide transition plan last week for its home and community-based services programs.

The plan outlines the state’s assessment of nine Medicaid programs and describes its strategies to comply with federal rules.

HFS will host two virtual town halls meetings this week to review plan revisions and field public comments. Feedback will be accepted through October.
