Webinar on New Guidance for HCBS Setting Rule

Lilly Hummel

Justice in Aging is co-presenting on a webinar on Wednesday, January 11 from 1:00-2:00 Eastern with staff from the Administration for Community Living (ACL) on promising practices in home and community-based services (HCBS) delivery for settings supporting individuals living with dementia, with a special focus on strategies for addressing wandering or exit-seeking behaviors.

States currently are modifying their Medicaid HCBS programs to comply with new federal regulations that prioritize independence and community integration for beneficiaries. An important, recurring question is how to apply these principles to beneficiaries living with dementia or other conditions that may result in wandering or exit-seeking behaviors.

CMS recently released new guidance that will be discussed during this seminar.
