Listening and Sharing Sessions

ATTENTION: RRecipients of NC Innovations (Residential Supports, Day Supports, and Supported Employment); CAP/DA and CAP/Choice (Adult Day Health); and CAP/C

Please Join Courtney Cantrell, Director of Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities and Substance Abuse Services; Jessica Keith, Special Advisor on ADA and Sandra Terrell, Director of DMA Clinical Policy

In 2014, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) made a new rule about community services. The rule is for all Medicaid Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waivers — NC’s Innovations Waiver, CAP/DA, CAP/C and CAP/Choice. The new HCBS Community Rule will make sure that waiver services support people to be a full part of the community—just like everyone else.

We need you to:

  • Talk with us and provide valued feedback about the proposed HCBS Transition Plan to help those receiving these services become a full part of their community.
  • Tell us what is working and what needs to change.
  • Make a plan that works for everyone.
  • Help build on our system’s strengths to meet requirements of the HCBS Final Rule (March 17, 2014).
