CMS is getting set to publish a Request for Information (RFI) on November 9 in the Federal Register. The RFI is entitled: Federal Government Interventions to Ensure the Provision of Timely and Quality Home and Community Based Services AGENCY: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), HHS.
This request for information seeks information and data on additional reforms and policy options that we can consider to accelerate the provision of home and community-based services (HCBS) to Medicaid beneficiaries taking into account issues affecting beneficiary choice and control, program integrity, ratesetting, quality infrastructure, and the homecare workforce. Comments will be received for up to 60 days after publication. CMS officials had referenced this upcoming RFI in SOS meetings with ANCOR and ANCOR will be submitting comments to respond. ANCOR will also provide a summary and template for members to use to submit their own individual comments in the coming weeks.
