Today the Center for Medicaid & CHIP Services (CMCS) released the Community First Choice: Final Report to Congress. The report describes findings in four states (California, Montana, Maryland, and Oregon) that have implemented the Community First Choice (CFC) benefit as of December 2014, and summarizes the status of the CFC benefit in those states as of March 15, 2015. The "Community First Choice Option" allows states to provide home and community-based attendant services and supports to eligible Medicaid enrollees under their State Plan.
