Tennessee Limits at-Home Services

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee is limiting the amount of home-nursing and personal assistance services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities to reduce budget costs, an approach that could push more people into community-based homes.
The Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities has been notifying families who use the at-home Medicaid waiver programs of the new limits since March. The department has been looking to make the changes for two years and got approval in February from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.
