Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waiver Renewal Approved
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has approved California's five year renewal of the HCBS Waiver for people with developmental disabilities effective March 29, 2012. Consistent with the Department's goal to maximize federal funding, approval of the Waiver secures the availability of approximately $1 billion in federal funding for regional center services. This Waiver includes new services previously not eligible for federal funding such as vouchered community-based training services, participant-directed nursing, financial management services and behavior management technician services.
