HCBS Modifications and Rights Restrictions Learning Collaborative

  • In response to states' continued need for assistance with modifications, NCAPPS will bring together state-led teams of human service agency representatives, service providers, case managers, advocates, and other community partners across the country from April to September 2024 to engage in peer-to-peer learning around modifications. 
  • Teams will pursue a common aim to improve processes for documenting and implementing modifications in compliance with the person-centered planning requirements of the final HCBS Settings Rule within provider-owned and controlled settings while promoting individual rights and preventing coercion. Teams will explore how to clarify roles and responsibilities among service providers and case managers, balance risk with ensuring the welfare of the person, document informed consent, minimize the intensity and duration of modifications, use person-centered planning tools, and ensure the appropriate documentation and oversight of modifications.

The deadline for this opportunity is today, April 12.
