HCBS Setting Statewide Transition Plan Public Comment


The Wyoming Department of Health, Behavioral Health Division and Division of Healthcare Financing seeks public input on its initially approved Statewide Transition Plan to comply with federal regulatory requirements. In March 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) passed new rules for provider setting requirements for Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS). The new rule requires all states to evaluate their provider’s settings where services are provided, and transition those settings to meet the new federal rules over eight (8) years. This affects all provider controlled, owned, or operated settings in which individuals receive HCBS through the Acquired Brain Injury, Comprehensive, Supports, or Community Choices waiver programs. This plan was first posted for public input October 18, 2014 and has been revised at the request of CMS.


A copy of the revised Wyoming Statewide Transition Plan may be found online at https://health.wyo.gov/behavioralhealth/dd/bhd-public-notices/ and https://health.wyo.gov/healthcarefin/medicaid/homecareservices/.
