Notice of Proposed Regulations
Published on June 7, 2013
MassHealth has received approval from CMS for two new 1915(c) home- and community-based services waivers related to MassHealth’s Money Follows the Person demonstration. The proposed amendments provide the eligibility requirements for an individual to enroll in one of these waivers. These regulations went into effect retroactive to April 1, 2013, as emergency regulations.
Revised regulations are renamed Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS) regulations to incorporate two new Money Follows the Person (MFP) waivers. They will provide home- and community-based waiver services to individuals that are transitioning from medical facilities to the community. These regulations went into effect April 1, 2013, as emergency regulations.
