How home and community-based settings look in South Carolina will be guided by the requirements outlined in the HCBS Rule.  Every home and community-based setting must meet the five overall requirements outlined in the HCBS Rule and listed below.  SCDHHS will be working with providers as we move forward with the South Carolina HCBS Statewide Transition Plan to ensure settings meet these requirements.  Providers need to be compliant with the new HCBS requirements by the end of 2022 to ensure the state's compliance by March 17, 2023.
