The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) has announced that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) approved FSSA’s request to amend the Indiana Aged and Disabled (A&D) waiver with a retroactive effective date of June 1, 2016.
The A&D waiver was amended to include the following changes:
• Incorporated related components of the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Statewide Transition Plan.
• Increased the unduplicated participant count for waiver year three through waiver year five.
• Replaced all “Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning (OMPP)” references with “Office of the Secretary” as the single state agency.
• Added new performance measures aligned with CMS guidance for quality improvement and oversight of waiver operations.
