Public comment period for Indiana’s modified Statewide Transition Plan

The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration is seeking public input on the modified Statewide Transition Plan (STP).  The plan will be open for public comment for 30 days, March 7 - April 6, 2016, and is available on the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Final Rule webpage. This comment period will allow all HCBS members, providers and stakeholders an opportunity to provide input to the plan.
Comments may be submitted in the following ways:
  • Email:  HCBSrulecomments@fssa.in.gov  
  • Written comments should be sent to:
    State of Indiana
    FSSA/OMPP
    Attn: HCBS Final Rule - Kelly Flynn, Manger, State Plan and Waivers
    402 W. Washington St., Rm. W374 MS - 07
    Indianapolis, IN 46204-2739
All comments will be tracked and summarized. The summary of comments, in addition to a summary of modifications, made in response to the public comments will be added to the modified STP. In cases where the state's determination differs from public comment, the additional evidence and rationale the state used to confirm the determination will be added to the plan. The modified STP will be submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services by April 30, 2016. Once it is submitted, the updated plan will be posted on the HCBS Final Rule webpage. Paper copies available upon request.
