ACL/CMS Promising Practices Training: Ensuring Continuity of HCBS During the COVID-19 Pandemic (4/23/2020)
Webinar date: April 23, 2020
ACL and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) are hosting a monthly Webinar series to assist states and stakeholders in developing high quality programs to address social determinants of health (SDOH) and provider capacity building in home- and community-based services (HCBS). The April 23 webinar focused on best practices in continuing access to HCBS during the COVID-19 pandemic. HCBS waivers promote social distancing practices by giving individuals tools to stay at home. CMS discussed state options for flexibilities available in Medicaid HCBS programs. States, providers, and advocates provided information about innovative community actions for HCBS waivers in the COVID-19 pandemic.
Additional questions, answers and resources from the Webinar will be posted soon.
