Course Summary

The Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Final Rule ensures individuals have full access to the benefits of community living and the opportunity to receive services in the most integrated setting appropriate. The purpose of the rules is to ensure that individuals receive services in settings that are integrated with and support full access to the greater community. This includes opportunities to seek employment and work in competitive and integrated settings, engage in community life, control personal resources, and receive services to the same degree as individuals who do not receive regional center services.

The Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) rules enacted in 2013 ensure that people with disabilities have full access to and enjoy the benefits of community living through long-term services and support in the most integrated settings of their choosing. The thrust of this online course is for providers to understand what HCBS looks like in everyday life. The course does not cover the many deadlines and compliance mandates. The written and video content are as timely now as when this course was first created.
