Council Encourages CMS to Communicate with States About Homelessness, PSH and Medical Respite Care

Together with other national colleagues, the Council has requested CMS encourage states to exercise their existing options under Medicaid to cover services delivered in permanent supportive housing (PSH) and medical respite care settings. We hope CMS will consider folding the contents of this letter into its existing efforts to highlight the health care services homeless individuals can be accessing through flexible options such as the 1915 Waiver, Health Homes, Community First Choice demonstrations, and other optional benefits and services.
