CMS Issues Non-Residential Settings Guidance

December 16, 2014

Late on Monday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued what they say is the "final guidance" on the HCBS rule. The guidance consists of "Exploratory Questions to Assist States in Assessment of Non-Residential Home and Community-Based Service (HCBS) Settings" and an updated section in its Q&A's titled "HCB Settings – Non-Residential" (starting on page 9). 

The non-residential settings guidance has been long-awaited among states, people served, disability-rights advocates, and service providers. ANCOR will provide a full analysis of the additional guidance to its members soon.
