CMS Offers a “Critical Tool” to Help Improve Staffing – Is It a Good One?

December 12, 2023

CMS released guidance today to help improve access for “millions” who receive HCBS!  The Guidance Memo can be found here.   On the surface it seems to be addressing Personal Care workers and touting the advantages of having a direct worker registry to “help ensure more individuals receiving Medicaid-covered services can receive care in a setting of their choice.”

CMS has money to spend, we will need to think about how we think Virginia should use this opportunity!
