With the release of the CMS HCBS Final Rule, Michigan providers (including HFAs, AFCs, Exempted settings, and independent living settings) should be aware, and preparing for, appropriate compliance in each of their settings. Many facilities are already aware of changes they may need to make while others, such as those who fall under the “heightened scrutiny” designation, are still waiting to know what they must do to comply.

This forum will include an overview of the CMS HCBS Final Rule. We will discuss compliance, person centered planning, and the heightened scrutiny process. We will also review the Joint Guidance Document (JGD) developed collaboratively by  MDHHS and LARA. The JGD advises providers about the HCBS requirements identified by the federal government (CMS) and how departments of the state of Michigan are working together to ensure requirements work together and do not contradict one another.

This will be an open forum to allow you to get answers to any questions you have about the HCBS Final Rule.

Target Audience
Home for Aged owners, directors and marketers; senior living settings (non licensed) owners and managers; AFC owners, directors, managers.

Contact Hours
This continuing education activity is appropriate for adult foster care providers and certified assisted living directors for a recommended maximum of 3 clock hours of professional development.
