On March 10, the Health Care Authority (HCA) will offer a webinar on the Foundational Community Supports (FCS) program, also known as Initiative 3 of the Medicaid transformation demonstration. The FCS program allows for two new targeted Medicaid benefits: supportive housing and supported employment. The webinar will provide important updates on these services, and how they will be implemented.
The supportive housing benefit of this initiative will receive an additional service package, known as Community Transition Services. These services are one-time supports to help individuals at risk of institutionalization access stable community housing.
In addition, HCA and Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) will administer the FCS benefits through a single, statewide Third Party Administrator (TPA). The TPA allows for the benefits to be delivered to those with the greatest and most immediate need of these evidence-based supports. These new services will provide necessary transition support for clients receiving Supportive Housing Services through the Medicaid demonstration.
The webinar will detail these new developments and outline next steps.
Date: March 10
Time: 10 to 11:30 a.m.
