People with developmental disabilities receive supports and services in their own home or community through funding from Medicaid Home & Community Based Service (HCBS) waivers.  In New Jersey, Medicaid Home and Community Based Services are available through the Community Care Waiver (CCW) and, in the near future, the Supports Program.  This presentation will offer an overview of the Medicaid program, with specific focus on service options.  Trends affecting service systems, including changing demographics, best practices in service system design, and increasing emphasis on employment and supporting families will be discussed. The new federal rules regarding HCBS settings will be described, along with state experiences to date in coming into compliance with these rules.
