VNPP Comments on the Revised Transition Plan to the CMS Rule

January 17, 2015

DMAS and DBHDS have developed a revised transtion plan which describes how Virginia will come into compliance with the CMS Rule for HCBS which requires providers to support individuals with, for example, freedom of choice, full community integration and as much autonomy as possible. While the Plan is a marked improvement over the first version, there are still some areas of concern.   See out comment here.

The Transition Plan can be found at the link below:
