The HCBS Transition Plan, a requirement under the January 16, 2014, CMS Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Settings Final Rule (CMS 2249-F/2296-F), sets forth the actions Ohio will take to operate all applicable HCBS programs in compliance with the final rule. On June 2, 2016, Ohio’s HCBS Transition Plan received initial approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). States are required to give public notice of amendments to the HCBS Transition Plan, and to
provide a 30-day public comment period.
