Michigan’s Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Transition Toolkit
Developed by MALA, MARO, and CMH Association
Tool kit version as of: December 15, 2017
This tool kit, developed by the Michigan Assisted Living Association (MALA), MARO, and the Community Mental Health Association of Michigan (CMH Association), is designed to assist residential and non-residential providers, CMHs, and PIHPs in making the changes required by Michigan’s Home and Community Based Services Transition plan.
Caveats in the use of this tool kit:
- This tool kit captures the most relevant documents, related to Michigan’s HCBS transition and a range of readiness tools for use by HCBS stakeholders. Note that some of the documents are still under development by MDHHS, CMS, LARA, or other parties. As these documents are finalized, they will be added to this tool kit which will be sent, as an updated tool kit, by MALA, MARO, and the CMH Association, to their members.
