Self Direction 201: CMS Final Waiver Rules

This April 2014 Self Direction 201 was developed for NRCPDS FMS and Program Members at Boston College.This session focused on highlights of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) final rule, CMS 2249-F and its impact on self-directed services. The intent of this rule is to ensure that individuals receiving services through Medicaid authorities 1915c, 1915i and 1915k programs have full access to the benefits of community living and to enhance their quality of life. The rule provides states the option to combine multiple target populations in a single waiver. The rule also defines person-centered planning requirements.
