HCBS Settings Final Rule…You mean we might have to change?!?
How is your State’s implementation of the HCBS Settings Rule going? Do you want to be involved but are not sure how? Or do you wish it would just go away?
This session will walk through one state’s process and experience in getting CMS final approval on their Statewide Transition Plan and what it means for people with disabilities and for providers in Tennessee. Michelle Morse Jernigan, from Tennessee’s State Medicaid Agency (TennCare) will share how TennCare developed their transition plan processes, how they involved (and relied upon) stakeholders, how implementation is going, and the promise these changes hold to impact the lives of people served in Tennessee’s LTSS programs. She will discuss experiences with persons served and their families, providers, and success story surprises. This session will include a presentation from Michelle on the components of Tennessee’s approved transition plan, assessment processes and heightened scrutiny reviews as well as how the state engaged consumers, families, providers and advocates, and at least an hour for an interactive discussion.
