Home and Community Based Services Final Rule Finding in Mississippi

  • This webinar (recorded on 4.24.19) discusses the general Home and Community Based Services Final Rule Assessment findings in Mississippi. Intellectual and Developmental Disability Providers were required to participate in the webinar in order to understand the Mississippi Department of Mental Health’s interpretation of key issues in the HCBS Final Rule and the remediation process required for providers to show full compliance. This is the 1st in a series of 4 webinars.

Home and Community Based Services Final Rule Webinar 2

  • This is the second of four webinars concerning the Home and Community Based Services Final Rule. One of the major components of the Final Rule is the importance of protecting individual rights. Site assessments conducted last fall helped to identify some common areas of noncompliance with the Final Rule. One of those areas was the need for direct support staff to have a better understanding of individual rights and how to support people in making informed choices. The Mississippi Department of Mental Health requires providers to discuss rights with persons at least annually. The assessment revealed a need for direct support staff to have a better understanding of individual rights. Direct support staff are the people that spend the majority of the time with the people we serve – where they live, work and/or spend their day. Support needs to move away from traditional ideas of caregiving that see persons with disabilities as passive recipients. Instead support should be based on persons having choice and control over their lives and supporting each to have the life they desire.
