- Public Comment Request: Non-Residential Provider Self-Assessment Tool
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services operates several programs under federal authority from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers. Waivers give states options to provide Medicaid services in home and community-based settings. In 2014, CMS published new regulations that changed the definition of HCBS settings in its waivers. The regulations ensure that Medicaid long-term care programs provide full access to the benefits of community living and offer services in the most integrated settings. The new regulations can be found on the CMS Website.
The Department is requesting comments from the public on the Non-Residential Provider Self-Assessment Tool (PDF, 258 KB) for all waiver programs covered by the CMS regulations. Non-residential providers will complete this document to demonstrate their compliance, or ability to become compliant with the new CMS regulations.
