CMS Proposed Rules Part 3: HCBS Program Changes

On Monday, June 12, State Health and Value Strategies hosted a webinar that focused specifically on key reforms that CMS has proposed for Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS) included in the “Access Proposed Rule.” During the third webinar in this three part series, experts from Manatt Health provided an overview of the provisions to enhance access to HCBS, standardize quality measures and reporting requirements, and address longstanding shortages in the direct care workforce. Presenters also highlighted areas where CMS is requesting comment (due July 3, 2023) and reviewed considerations for state officials.

As a companion to this three-part webinar series, SHVS published a new expert perspective authored by Manatt Health that summarizes the two proposed rules, CMS Proposes Significant Medicaid Policy Changes for Access Monitoring, Managed Care, and HCBS. SHVS has also published the webinar slides and recordings for part one and two of the series: CMS Proposed Rules Part 1: Access to Care and Transparency, and CMS Proposed Rules Part 2: Coverage, Financing, Payment and Quality.
