OCDD Home and Community-Based Services Setting Transition Plan



Quarterly Updates

Louisiana Statewide Transition Plan (STP)

After the CMS review in the late summer, Louisiana amended the Statewide Transition Plan (STP) to include robust information about the systemic assessment review of state statutes, waivers, policy and procedures and other documentation.  Minor adjustments were made in the areas of work plans and other activities.  Due to a weather disaster, CMS granted the state an additional 30 days for public comments.  The revised STP was made available to the public on September 14, 2016 in both an electronic version posted on the LDH program offices websites and by hardcopy which was provided upon request.  Comments were due October 14, 2016.  No comments were received. 

The following version of the STP includes these revisions and was submitted to CMS for Initial Approval review on October 26, 2016.

OCDD is committed to engaging stakeholders throughout the process of coming into compliance with CMS final rule related to HCBS settings. This posting is the latest version of the Louisiana Statewide Transition Plan for stateholder review.  It will be submitted to CMS by October 30, 2016.  Each Local Governing Entity (LGE) will have a hard copy available for review. LGE contact information is located at http://new.dhh.louisiana.gov/index.cfm/page/134
