Dates and Deadlines
All states must submit to CMS a plan for transitioning their current HCBS system into compliance with the new rule by March 17, 2015. States submitting a 1915(c) waiver renewal or amendment before March 17, 2015 must include a transition plan in that submission. States then have 120 days from that submission date to submit a transition plan for the remainder of their HCBS system.
On July 30, 2014 the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy & Financing posted Public Notice of their transition plans and public comment periods. The Department posted the Colorado Transition Plan Draft for comment until September 10, 2014 and the draft waiver amendments until September 19. For more documents from the state see below.
On November 19, 2014, Colorado submitted a final Statewide Transition Plan to the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
