Provider Survey for Non-Residential HCBS Providers

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), states, and home and community based services (HCBS) providers are in the process of implementing the HCBS Settings Rule

The National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) is evaluating issues, challenges, and promising practices related to non-residential services for older adults and people with disabilities. There are ongoing questions regarding how non-residential services for these populations should be structured in order to comply with the rule while also providing the comprehensive array of health and social services that they were designed to include. In particular, this may affect adult day services provided in the same building as nursing home or ICF/ID services.

NASUAD is conducting a brief survey of non-residential HCBS providers (e.g., adult day service providers) to offer federal policymakers examples of ways to provide non-residential services in a manner that meets the rule’s requirements as well as the needs of these populations, and to assist with technical assistance to state agencies as they assess options for service delivery.

The survey is available online here. We would greatly appreciate a response by Tuesday, October 31st from any providers that also operate adult day services as an HCBS provider.  

Please email at NASUAD with any questions or concerns.
