Assisted living organizations are waving warning flags about a proposed rule from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services that would collapse three types of Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers into one -- allowing individual state Medicaid waivers to cover such services for the aged/disabled, the developmentally disabled/mentally retarded, and the mentally ill. A second proposed change would define HCBS in a way that could potentially exclude assisted living facilities.
