A letter was distributed to the DS Directors last week to be used by Case Managers to inform families about the HCBS Regulation now in effect. It is lengthy and complicated. While it does appear to adequately reflect the content of the CMS regulation, it is probably wise for each provider to communicate with their families and share their own plans for compliance and what impact they may have on the lives of the individuals they support.
The letter is available here
and the Office of Licensing Review form is available here
