HCBS Final Ruling Presentation
Date: Friday, March 3, 2017
Time: 1:00 to 5:00 pm
Location: Campbell Community Center
Hello Service Providers,
Changes to the way you provide services are coming soon. The federal government, which funds a large portion of the costs of the services you provide, is requiring that all states submit plans to come into compliance with new requirements by March 2019. The new requirements are referred to as the HCBS Final Rule. Please see the attached Fact Sheet from DDS for more information about the HCBS Final Rule.
San Andreas Regional Center strongly recommends that providers attend a presentation on the HCBS Final Rule on Friday, March 3, from 1:30 to 2:30 at the Campbell Community Center. The presenter, Laura Brackin, is a former head of Louisiana’s equivalent of CA’s Department of Developmental Services. Ms. Brackin provides consultation across the country on the HCBS Final Rule. She will provide a brief history of this issue, a snapshot of where CA is currently and speak about things providers can do right now to start to come into compliance with the eventual requirements. If you are a provider of residential services or day program services, you are particularly encouraged to attend now so that you are not surprised when the requirements come about.
