HCBS Setting Rules Setting Advocacy
January 25, 2016
The process for states to come into compliance with the new Medicaid home and community based services (HCBS) settings rules is ongoing, and involvement from advocates remains important. The HCBS rules require all HCBS settings (residential and non-residential) provide participants with the full benefits of community living and the same degree of access to their communities as individuals not receiving HCBS. The HCBS rules provide an important opportunity to move state systems towards services that support full inclusion and integration into the community.
