     Sections of the Home and Community-Based Service manual are currently being revised. The Department of Aging/Office of Long-Term Living (OLTL) has been working closely with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) on several waiver amendments and renewals. The two waiver renewals most recently approved by CMS -- Attendant Care and Aging – are accompanied by detailed work plans and contain significant changes that require policy clarifications. Until revisions are completed, please refer to the Waiver applications for policy guidance regarding all Aging/OLTL waivers. The applications may be found at the following link:
