Community Recovery Services (CRS)
Wisconsin's Medicaid State Plan Amendment under 1915(i) State Plan Home and Community-Based Services is called Community Recovery Services and provides three (3) specific services: Community Living Supportive Services, Supported Employment, and Peer Supports, under the umbrella of psychosocial rehabilitation.
CRS Home and Community Based Services Transition Plan for 1915(i)
The Department intends to transition the Community Recovery Services (CRS) program currently operating under the 1915(i) authority to a 1905(a) authority effective January 1, 2015, pending CMS approval. DHS will issue a public notice regarding this transition under the Wisconsin State Register to be published on November 15th. If CMS does not approve the transition of the CRS program from a 1915(i) to a 1905(a) requirement, DHS agrees to follow the statewide transition plan for Home and Community Based Services as outlined in the statewide transition plan to bring Wisconsin’s home and community-based services programs into compliance with the new federal HCBS regulation.
