Sometimes, estate planning involves protecting our beneficiaries either from themselves, future creditors or protecting them so that they do not lose any government benefits that they would be receiving at the time they would inherit.

ACL invites you to a webinar in our series on strengthening advocacy in the Home- and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Settings Rule, Getting the Services You Need from the Waiver , on Wednesday, December 14, 2022.

The HCBS Settings Rule can improve community-based services and supports for people with disabilities and older adults for decades to come. This webinar will provide insight into one of the main strategies stakeholders can use to get the promise of the Rule into everyday life: influencing the services that are included in the waiver application. 

The webinar will highlight why you should pay attention to the waiver application and what is in an application, with a focus on appendix C – Services. It will also look at what states have to put into the application and highlight best practices for commenting on your state’s waiver application.

Live captioning will be provided. A video replay and transcript will be made available following the event on ACL’s HCBS Settings Rule webpage.
