CMS Releases Informational Bulletin on Medicaid Financing for Housing-Related Services

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

The U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released an Informational Bulletin outlining the specific housing-related activities and services that can be reimbursed for Medicaid covered individuals with disabilities. These include transition to housing as well as housing retention services that may be provided to help prevent and end homelessness among many of the most vulnerable individuals with disabilities who need additional supports to regain and/or maintain housing.

TAC joined the National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH), the Corporation for Supportive Housing (CSH), and the National Health Care for the Homeless Council (NHCHC) in releasing a Policy and Program Alert today highlighting the bulletin, which signifies CMS' commitment to helping states expand home and community-based living opportunities which include housing-related activities and services for Medicaid beneficiaries.
