Re: Public comment period for Indiana’s amended Statewide Transition Plan
Date: July 27, 2016
The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) is seeking public input on the amended Statewide Transition Plan (STP) that includes site-specific assessment results.  The plan will be open for public comment for 30 days, July 27 – August 26, 2016. Visit the Home and Community Based Service (HCBS) Final Rule Web page for additional details.
This comment period will allow all Home and Community Based Service members, providers and stakeholders an opportunity to provide input to the plan. Comments and input regarding the amended STP may be submitted in the following ways:
  • Email: HCBSrulecomments@fssa.in.gov    
  • Written comments may be sent to:
    State of Indiana
    FSSA/OMPP
    Attn: HCBS Final Rule - Kelly Flynn, Manager, 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 modified plan. The modified STP will be submitted to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) by September 30, 2016. Once it is submitted, the updated STP will be posted on the webpage. Paper copies available upon request.  Printed copies are also posted in all local Division of Family Resources offices
