Concerning the continuation of in-home support services within the "Colorado Medical Assistance Act", and, in connection therewith, implementing the recommendations contained in the 2018 sunset report by the department of regulatory agencies.
2019 Regular Session
Health Care & Health Insurance
Bill Summary

Medicaid - home- and community-based services - extend in-home support services waiver program. The act implements the recommendations of the department of regulatory agencies' sunset review by extending the repeal date of in-home support services for certain home- and community-based services (HCBS) waivers under the Colorado medical assistance program by 9 years, from 2019 to 2028. Prior to the repeal, the department of regulatory agencies shall conduct a sunset review of the program.

The act amends the eligibility definition for in-home support services, removing the reference to specific HCBS waivers and including those waivers for which there is state and federal authority for in-home support services. The act also removes language relating to an obsolete reporting requirement.
