Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) for People with Disabilities and Age 65 or Older – 245D

Effective January 1, 2014, DHS will license certain home and community-based services provided to people with disabilities and those ages 65 and older. Most of the services are funded under one of Minnesota’s Medicaid waiver programs.

The HCBS standards under Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 245D, were passed by the 2013 Minnesota Legislature. This was part of a larger HCBS Waiver Provider Standards initiative to improve the dignity, health and independence of the people we serve.
