In March 2020, the commissioner temporarily waived requirements to allow for remote HCBS services for people who live in their own homes. The commissioner has expanded this option temporarily to allow remote supports in provider-controlled settings (e.g., family and corporate foster care, community residential settings, housing with services establishments, customized living, etc.) as well as for people who live in their own homes.
For more information and operational guidance, see Bulletin #20-56-02, Amended: Temporary expansion of remote support for home and community-based services (HCBS) waivers (PDF).
