Community Choices Waiver
The Louisiana Department of Health (LDH), Bureau of Health Services Financing (BHSF) and the Office of Aging and Adult Services (OAAS) currently provide home and community-based services through the Community Choices (CC) Waiver to eligible Medicaid participants.
The Department hereby gives public notice of its intent to submit an application for a waiver amendment to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in order to continue services in the CC Waiver. The amendment of this waiver is contingent upon CMS approval.
In compliance with CMS requirements, the department is posting the CC Waiver renewal application (LA.0866.R02.14) for public comment from March 1, 2023 through March 31, 2023. CMS regulations require LDH to actively engage the public and give program participants, advocates, providers and other community stakeholders the opportunity to provide input regarding changes made to current waiver applications prior to the submission of final versions to CMS.
A hard copy of the application may be printed from the link below or requested by calling the OAAS Help Line at 1-866-758-5035. It is also available for viewing at the OAAS Regional Offices (ROs). The OAAS ROs in your region can be found at: https://ldh.la.gov/index.cfm/directory/category/141 or by calling the OAAS Help Line at 1-866-758-5035.
