CMS Issues 1915c Informational Bulletin (click here to read full bulletin)

The bulletin was released Friday and represents a two-year effort to provide "clarification of existing CMS guidance on development and implementation of §1915 (c) Waivers regarding employment and employment related services." Note the following highlights of the bulletin: 

  • Modifies both the prevocational services and supported employment definitions to clarify that volunteer work and other activities that are not paid, integrated community employment are appropriately described in pre-vocational, not supported employment services;
  • Explains that pre-vocational services are not an end point, but a time limited (although no specific limit is given) service for the purpose of helping someone obtain competitive employment;
  • Adds a new core service definition by splitting what had previously been supported employment into two definitions: individual and small group supported employment; and
  • Includes a new service definition for career planning that may be separate or rolled into the other employment related service definitions.
