HB16-1195 - Home Modification Services In Medicaid Waivers

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning Home Modification Services In Medicaid Home- And Community-Based Services Waivers.

The bill amends the definition of home modification services to clarify that the services are available for installations and adaptations related to an eligible person's disability as permitted by federal law, and not solely for a physical impairment.

With federal authorization, the bill permits the cap on the amount of home modification services an individual may receive to reset at the time of the renewal of the home- and community-based services (HCBS) for the elderly, blind, and disabled waiver.

The bill aligns the statutory definition for environmental modification services in the HCBS for persons with brain injury waiver by renaming it home modification services, and, with federal authorization, permits the cap on the amount of services an individual may receive to reset at the time of the renewal of the waiver.
