CMS Extends Deadline for Comments to Proposed Rule on HCBS

May 14, 2012

On May 1, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a correction to a proposed rule announced on April 26 entitled, "Medicaid Program; State Plan Home and Community-Based Services, 5-Year Period for Waivers, Provider Payment Reassignment, and Setting Requirements for Community First Choice."

The rule would give states more flexibility to offer home and community-based services (HCBS) and support to Medicaid enrollees. The deadline for public comment now ends July 2, rather than June 4 (as was previously published).
