CDIA filed a comment to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to encourage CMS to require name-based, commercial criminal background checks for providers of home and community-based services (HCBS) provided to Medicaid beneficiaries. CDIA’s comment is in response to a request for information (RFI) from CMS to help improve the quality of HCBS provided to Medicaid beneficiaries. You may recall that CDIA filed a comment with CMS in the past, in connection with long-term care.
