The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a webinar in June 2019 on the HCBS Settings Rule.

The webinar is titled “System Change vs. Compliance Mindset Approach in Implementing the Settings Rule”. It will take place on June 12, 2019, from 1:30-3:00 ET. Here is a description of the webinar from CMS:

“This presentation will identify strategies to integrate the values and principles of the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) settings rule into the fabric of a state's HCBS program, will identify some basic tenets of HCBS system change including examples of how states have demonstrated system transformation and will describe how the state can use the Statewide Transition Plan to execute system change. New Editions is currently the training lead through the Home & Community-Based Settings (HCB Settings) Contract overseen by the Division of Long Term Services & Supports (DLTSS). New Editions will present the training and Ralph Lollar, DLTSS Division Director, and the DLTSS Team will support the training and lead the Q&A Session. In addition, representatives from Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Connecticut will share their experiences in implementing system transformation.”

The primary audience for the webinar is state government officials/staff, however, it may be helpful for providers to hear the discussion and (if available) ask questions. LeadingAge will attend.
