Home and Community Based Services
A number of the members of the Michigan Assisted Living Association (MALA), MARO, and the Michigan Association of Community Mental Health Boards (MACMHB) – from those who are nearly HCBS ready to those who are starting their HCBS readiness efforts - have asked for guidance in locating key resources as they work to ensure the readiness of their organizations, consumers, and stakeholders to make the changes required as Michigan implements its Home and Community Based Services HCBS) rules changes.
In response to this request, a HCBS tool kit, developed by the Michigan Assisted Living Association (MALA), MARO, and the Michigan Association of Community Mental Health Boards (MACMHB), has been developed. It is designed to assist residential and non-residential providers, CMHs, and PIHPs in making the changes required by Michigan’s Home and Community Based Services Transition plan.
As is noted in the caveats contained in the opening of this document, this tool kit captures the most relevant documents, related to Michigan’s HCBS transition and a range of readiness tools for use by HCBS stakeholders. Note that some of the documents are still under development by MDHHS, CMS, LARA, or other parties. As these documents are finalized, they will be added to this tool kit which will be sent, as an updated tool kit, by MALA, MARO, and MACMHB to their members.
