Statewide Transition Plan for Illinois Waivers

April 13th, 2015

Federal government requires transition plan for waivers and Illinois responds.

Earlier this year, we posted about a new regulation that requires states with Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services to develop a transition plan. This includes services offered through the Home Care Program. Read our January 2015 post New Medicaid Rules for Home and Community Based Waivers.

The plan is intended to help individuals receiving these services gain full access to benefits of community living. It also promotes services in the most integrated setting that is appropriate.
