May 13, 2014 | The Association of University Centers on Disability (AUCD), the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities and the National Disability Rights Network have launched a new web site to help advocates get involved in their states and improve the implementation of the new Medicaid Final Rule regarding the settings of Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS). HCBSadvocacy.org provides links to official Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) resources, national advocacy resources and information for each state on their HCBS transition and compliance process.
The web site relies on national and local organizations working to help inform each other. If you have information or resources to share from your state, please email HCBSadvocacy@gmail.com.
