HOME AND COMMUNITY-BASED SERVICES REGIONAL MEETINGS

Join ADMH and Partners to learn more about the Home and Community Based Settings Rule

Montgomery, Ala. – The Alabama Department of Mental Health (ADMH), the Alabama Disability Advocacy Program and People First Alabama have partnered to host five meetings providing information and guidance on the Home and Community-Based Settings Rule (HCBS). Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) are provided to individuals with disabilities in their homes and communities through Medicaid waivers.

With services related to the Home and Community-Based Settings Rule, individuals with disabilities can become more empowered to make choices for their lives. The Home and Community-Based Settings Rule assures services focus on freedom of choice, integration into the community, dignity, respect, and protection of individual rights and privacy. Join us to learn more about person-centered planning, self-directed services, and other aspects of HCBS.
