, to come into compliance with the HCBS Settings Final Rule.
KDADS intends to use this one-year extension to allow providers additional time to remediate and come into compliance with the requirements of the Final Rule. KDADS will continue to process self-assessment desk reviews and send out notifications to providers by September 1, 2020. In addition, KDADS will push back the timeline for transitioning HCBS waiver participants from settings that are unable or unwilling to come into compliance. KDADS will publish an updated timeline in the coming weeks.
