Last week, the deadline for states to submit their transition plans to CMS outlining how they will come into compliance with the HCBS Settings Rule passed. Several states have yet to submit their final plans; in fact some states are still collecting public comment in response to their proposals. CMS has not yet approved any of the transition plans which have been submitted for consideration. Federal resources and state by state details, including draft and final plans, can be found at www.hcbsadvocacy.org. The Arc will continue to monitor this issue.
