Updated Statewide Transition Plan for HCBS Final Rules
The Commonwealth of Kentucky updated its Statewide Transition Plan (STP), which outlines our process for implementing the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Final Rules. Kentucky received initial approval on its STP in June, 2016, and updated the STP based on additional feedback and comments from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
These updates include further defining our heightened scrutiny and assessment processes. The public notice of the updated STP was published in newspapers and on the DMS web page on December 20, 2016. The STP is open for public comment until January 19, 2017 and is published on the Department for Medicaid Services (DMS)’ webpage: http://chfs.ky.gov/dms/
