LTO Ventures Responds to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

LTO Ventures has submitted its public comment in response to The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (“CMS”) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking CMS-2249-P2.  Read the full text of our 18-page comment letter here.  We strongly oppose CMS’ latest attempt to narrow the definition of a home and community-based setting, and thus reduce the amount and variety of housing available.  We believe that individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other developmental and intellectual disabilities have the right to live in the residential setting of their choosing, and to receive the services they need in that setting whether or not those services are funded by Medicaid, the primary financial safety net for persons with disabilities.  We encourage anyone who shares our view to share our comment letter.
