Last week, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) – through the U.S Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) – announced that states would have an additional year to use funding from the American Rescue Plan to both enhance and expand home- and community-based services (HCBS).
The news is major for home-based care providers, as the federal government is committing to further and prolonged support for HCBS in general.
“The Biden-Harris Administration is committed to expanding access to home- and community-based care for people with disabilities and older adults,” CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-Lasure said in a statement. “Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, these additional funds will help people with Medicaid to live and thrive in the setting of their choice. With this extension, we are addressing states’ concerns, giving states the time and resources to strengthen connections to care at home and in communities.”
