Getting the Community Life You Want: A Guide to Home and Community Based Services Advocacy

Getting the Community Life You Want cover

The Home and Community Based Settings (HCBS) Final Rule, a federal policy change announced by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), provides new opportunities for people with disabilities to have the kinds of community services they want. The Rule requires that the places where people receive HCBS waiver services offer full access to the benefits of community life. This guide contains information about the HCBS Final Settings Rule and resources to help you provide your support coordinator and service providers with input about the services you receive and how they can to help you get the community life you want. Available in English and Spanish.
