The purpose of the HCBS Rules is to ensure individuals receiving HCBS are integrated into their communities and have full access to the benefits of community living.

These new requirements, from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), impact individuals receiving services in residential and non-residential settings such as assisted living facilities, group homes, adult day health, day treatment and training, center-based employment programs, etc. All service settings must come into compliance by March 2023.
