Current Suspected Overdose Deaths in Delaware for 2022: Get Help Now!
As part of the American Rescue Plan Act, Congress provided a temporary 10% increase in the federal matching on Medicaid home- and community-based services (HCBS). Delaware’s Medicaid program is claiming enhanced federal match ($52+ million) and is listening to the community for the best ways to use that funding to support HCBS.
In order to claim this enhanced federal funding, States must develop and submit a detailed spending plan to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that uses the dollars to enhance, expand or strengthen HCBS, and do it in a way that is sustainable after the enhanced funding ends. The funding cannot be used for room and board payments.
DMMA has partnered with the following divisions for the initiatives identified in HCBS Spending Plan:
Delaware's initial HCBS Spending Plan and subsequent quarterly HCBS Spending Plan updates include initiatives involving DMMA, DDDS, DSAAPD and DSAMH, and total approximately $22.1 million in enhanced federal funding for the following categories:
DMMA welcomes community feedback on ways to enhance, expand, and strengthen Medicaid home and community-based services (HCBS) and certain behavioral health services through one-time and time-limited investments. This section will continue to be updated with notices, meeting information, and documents related to community input.
DMMA encourages community members to submit questions and comments directly to MedicaidInfo@delaware.gov.
To support development of this HCBS spending plan, DMMA has periodically held open public listening sessions to solicit community feedback.
