- CMS resources to support states in unwinding PHE flexibilities, including considerations for HCBS;
- An overview of HCBS-related PHE flexibilities to unwind, with a focus on the 1915(c) HCBS in 1915(c) waivers and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) approval process;
- An overview of HCBS-related PHE flexibilities that can be made permanent in 1915(c) waivers and the CMS approval process; and
- Other considerations for HCBS programs when unwinding from the PHE.
Following the presentation, webinar participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.
