The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration will be extending the deadline from Feb. 10 to Feb. 18, for the Home- and Community-Based Services Stabilization Grant opportunity, as described in our HCBS Enhanced Federal Medical Assistance Percentage Spend Plan. Interested eligible HCBS Medicaid providers now have until Feb. 18, 2022, to complete the required grant attestation form.
Additionally, FSSA intends to make an update to the methodology for calculating grant amounts to ensure a more equitable approach in light of the continuing Public Health Emergency. FSSA will now calculate the grant amount as a flat percentage of each eligible provider’s highest annual claims total across calendar years 2019, 2020 and 2021. The percentage applied will remain in the previously stated range of 7-8%.
HCBS providers can visit the Indiana HCBS Enhanced FMAP Spend Plan page to obtain more information and access resources including an informational video, FAQ, provider bulletin and Attestation Form. Topics covered in those resources include general background on the grants, eligible provider groups, process and timing expectations, grant methodology and required provider attestations.
