OAAS Home- and Community-based Services Settings Transition Plan

The Louisiana Statewide Transition Plan (STP) for Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS) is out for public comment until March 16th. 

The Louisiana Department of Health submitted this transition plan to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services {CMS) to explain how the state will bring its HCBS waivers into compliance with their new regulations that define the settings in which it is permissible for states to pay for Medicaid HCBS. The purpose of these regulations is to ensure that individuals receive Medicaid HCBS in settings that are integrated into and support full access to the greater community. The Office of Aging and Adult Services (OAAS) has developed this transition plan for the purpose of ensuring that HCBS settings within the Adult Day Health Care (ADHC) and Community Choices Waivers (CCW) meet the requirements of the rule and to allow the public an opportunity to provide input on the transition.
