The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is creating a repository of Promising Practices in Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) to highlight state efforts that enable persons of any age who have a disability or long-term illness to live in the most integrated community setting appropriate to their individual support requirements and preferences, exercise meaningful choices, and obtain quality services.

The Promising Practices Reports are intended to disseminate timely information on program and policy innovation. The majority of the reports are two to three pages in length, although some may be longer to provide additional detail or case studies. Some focus on efforts to implement comprehensive reform, but most focus on discrete components of home and community-based service systems, such as person centered planning, eligibility systems, personal assistance services, financing mechanisms, quality improvement systems, and case management systems that can be incorporated into an overall program design.

These reports are intended to stimulate HCBS program changes, spark creative ideas, and serve as a launching pad for the next generation of program innovations. Promising Practices Reports do not, however, represent an endorsement of any practice by CMS or by Thomson Healthcare.
