​OK Statewide Transition Plan for Compliance with CMS HCBS Settings Requirements

As outlined in the June 10, 2014 Bulletin, The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) released a Final Rule, effective March 17, 2014, addressing several sections of Medicaid law under which States may use federal Medicaid funds to pay for HCBS.  The rule supports enhanced quality in HCBS programs and adds protections for individuals receiving services.  A full version of the Federal Register may be found at the following link:
