The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services yesterday launched for state Medicaid agencies and stakeholders on Medicaid.gov a webpage dedicated to advancing transparency and innovation for home and community-based services. The webpage gives state Medicaid agencies access to information about states' plans to enhance, expand and strengthen these services using funding made available by the American Rescue Plan Act. The funding increases, made available through March 22, 2022, seek to allow Medicaid enrollers needing long-term care and support to receive the assistance to stay in the residence of their choice.
