What is HCS?
HCS stands for Home and Community Based Services.
Home and Community Based Services (HCS) is a Medicaid waiver program that provides services and support to individuals with intellectual disability disorders, so they can continue to live with family or independently.
These services can be provided in your own home, your family's home, a foster care home where you live with another family, or a home in the community where the individual lives with two or three other people.
Service Coordination- Everybody who is enrolled in the HCS program will have a Service Coordinator who:
• coordinates the development and implementation of the person's Individual Plan of Care (IPC)
• coordinates various aspects of services delivered under the HCS Program and through other sources
• keeps track of the person's progress or lack of progress.
