The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) rule listed in the federal Register published January 16, 2014 (79 FR 2948), says that states are required to separate case management (Person-Centered Service Plan development) from service delivery functions. For a listing of the requirements, please see 42 CFR 532.301 (C) (1) (vi) or in the Conflict of Interest in Medicaid Authorities document.
The Bureau for Medical Services (BMS) will be conducting a series of stakeholder meetings for each of the waivers for input on what these services would look like for the State of West Virginia. Please click on the applicable waiver program below for specific information:
