Federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) have regulations (or rules) for Medicaid waiver programs that provide Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS).

The Department of Developmental Services (DDS) is providing upcoming webinars and face-to-face trainings on the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Final Rule.

These webinars are the first in a series of trainings and will describe the HCBS Final Rule, who it applies to, and why it exists. The goal is to establish a common understanding of terms, discuss the review process for settings in California, and to reinforce the important role stakeholder input plays.

Everyone is invited to attend! This information will assist us as a community in furthering our Person Centered practices and will help everyone understand the HCBS Final Rule. Please find below the dates and times of the webinars, as well as a link for registration.

Thursday August 1, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Thursday August 8, 2019, from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
