Summary: How States are Modifying HCBS Programs to Address COVID-19 Emergency

March 26, 2020

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has begun reviewing and approving states’ emergency requests to modify their home and community-based services (HCBS) waivers. These approvals, documented through CMS’ Appendix K form, list the many modifications that CMS has approved in the past week.

As an aid to advocates, providers, and policy-makers, Justice in Aging is reviewing and summarizing the CMS approvals pertaining to aging-focused HCBS waivers. This summarized information, organized by the same categories used in Appendix K, can be a guide for advocates and others to identify useful modifications and flag others that may be problematic or otherwise unwanted.
