HCBS Rules 30-Day Public Comment Opportunity Ends July 5

AHCCCS is accepting public comment through July 5, 2022 regarding Home and Community Based Settings (HCBS) that meet the criteria for Heightened Scrutiny. Heightened Scrutiny is required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) when a setting might share some characteristics of an institution (i.e. isolating people from the broader community), but there is an indication through an assessment that the setting can comply with the HCBS Rules by March 2023.

More information and a link to provide comments is posted on the AHCCCS HCBS website at azahcccs.gov/hcbs.

Comments can also be submitted by email to HCBS@azahcccs.gov, or by mail to AHCCCS
