HCBS Settings Review Panel
DHS will use an HCBS Settings Review Panel (SRP) to review evidentiary packages of some settings that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) “presumes are not HCBS.” The Department of Human Services (DHS) will review these packages after the public comment period but before submission to CMS, when:
- DHS does not believe the setting is HCBS
- Public comment raises concern that the setting has institutional or isolating qualities.
We will post evidentiary packages for public comment on the HCBS settings evidentiary packages webpage as we complete them.
In March 2019, DHS selected 11 SRP members who represent diverse perspectives and experiences. Click the Members tab below to read a list of members.
DHS will provide the resources necessary to operate the SRP. Members will not be paid and will volunteer their time to participate on the panel.
