DHCS has worked with partner agencies, including the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), the California Department of Aging (CDA), the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), California Department of Social Services (CDSS), Stakeholders, and other entities to develop the revised STP and attachments. DHCS is committed to working with partner agencies and stakeholders throughout the transition period.
Below, is DHCS revised
Statewide Transition Plan (STP), describing California’s current efforts and
actions the state proposes to ensure Home and Community-Based Service (HCB)
providers achieve compliance with the federal HCB settings rule. CMS granted initial approval
of California’s STP on February 23, 2018. DHCS is required to seek
advice from designees of Indian Health Programs and Urban Indian Organizations
on Medi-Cal matters having a direct effect on Indians, Indian Health Programs
or Urban Indian Organizations per the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of
2009 (ARRA). The STP was submitted for tribal review on May 20, 2021. The public comment period was held from June 19, 2021 through July 19, 2021, with the intention of submitting the STP for final approval. Upon further discussion, DHCS will be postponing the submission of the STP to CMS. DHCS, the Department of Developmental Services (DDS), the California Department of Aging (CDA), have identified an opportunity to include clarifying information on the remediation process, and to complete assessment activities. DHCS encourages stakeholders to
continue to visit the website for additional information and to email STP@dhcs.ca.gov
with any questions, or to
request a hard copy of the STP. For more information on the CBAS STP, please
