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.

The District of Columbia does not have an HCBS waiver or state plan benefit up for renewal before the March 17, 2015 deadline. The state has until March 17, 2015 to submit a transition plan to CMS. For more information visit Medicaid.gov.
