What is the Purpose of this Survey?
In 2014, the Center for Medicaid Services (CMS) issued the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Final Settings Rule.  The Rule was intended to ensure that people who receive HCBS (like Intellectual Disabilities and Living at Home Waiver services) are able to live and work in the community with the same degree of integration as people who do not receive HCBS. 
Since 2014, Alabama has been working to make changes in the way HCBS are provided to waiver participants. The Alabama Medicaid Agency (AMA) needs to make sure that Medicaid waiver providers can - and do - follow the Rule requirements. We will use your feedback from this survey to help guide the state’s ongoing efforts to meet that goal.
Who Should Respond to this Survey?
To help us understand how effective our work has been so far, and especially what else we still need to do, AMA is seeking feedback from people who receive HCBS, their family members, advocates and providers.
