Learn about Ohio’s CMS Transition Plan HERE.

In January 2014 the federal Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) published new regulations for the use of funds that provide Home and Community Based Services (HCBS). All 50 states must submit plans to CMS describing how they will come into compliance with these new regulations. In Ohio the Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) administers four types of medicaid waivers that support HCBS. Click here for links to a draft of Ohio’s plan, the powerpoint presentation given at information forums about the plan and the handout that describes how to give feedback.

Employment First is a statewide initiative to increase integrated employment opportunities for people with developmental disabilities. This new law is bringing about many policy changes across agencies. The HCN is taking the family perspective. We will try to keep families up to date on what they need to know in this ever changing landscape on our Employment First page (also under Priorities of Community Living tab).
