    The Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency) is submitting to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) a transition plan as specified in the 42 CFR 441.301(c)4 for the Adult Cystic Fibrosis (ACF) Waiver. The ACF Transition Plan and the public process used to solicit public input are described in this notice.


    Description of the Adult Cystic Fibrosis Waiver Transition Plan:

    The Agency is submitting to CMS a transition plan for the ACF Waiver in compliance with the Home and Community-Based (HCB) Settings Rule CMS 2249-F. The draft transition plan is designed to ensure that individuals receiving home and community-based services in the ACF Waiver are integrated in, and have access to, supports in the community, including opportunities to seek employment, work in competitive integrated settings, engage in community life, control personal resources and maintain the rights of privacy, dignity, respect and freedom. The draft transition plan describes how the State will assess, determine compliance, remediate and monitor the waiver’s continued compliance with the HCB settings requirements.


    The HCB Settings Rule requires public notice and a 30-day public comment period to solicit meaningful public input for consideration in the development of the transition plan prior to submission to CMS. The Agency is providing public notice on the draft transition plan to solicit meaningful public input from recipients, providers and all stakeholders prior to submission of the transition plan to CMS. The Agency will post the draft transition plan on its website for public comment beginning February 25, 2015 and ending March 27, 2015.
