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 February 2, 2015 the South Dakota Department of Social Services posted a Statewide Transition Plan. Comments on the plan are due March 4, 2015. They will host Community Conversations about the plan.
