Community Alternatives Program for Children (CAP/C)


The Community Alternatives Program for Children (CAP/C) 1915(c) Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waiver is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2015. However, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) granted the Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) an extension through Nov. 30, 2016 to work closely with stakeholders of this waiver. The proposed amended CAP/C waiver will be posted for Oct. 20, 2016 for 30 days. DMA is seeking comments and suggestions on the amended waiver from interested parties. All comments and suggestions must be submitted to DMA by Nov. 19, 2016.

CAP/C Stakeholder Engagement Plan

In order for DHHS to fully engage stakeholders as we develop a plan to address concerns with the CAP/C waiver, we have established a working group that consists of families, providers and other advocates to assist in the structure of our path forward. The working group held six meetings from July through September and assisted DMA in establishing a draft CAP/C to present to the Centeres of Medicare & Medicaid Services. 

The Division of Medical Assistance also held six listening sessions across North Carolina for families to engage with our staff regarding their specific concerns.

Additionally, we established a specific time period during July and August for families and concerned individuals to meet one-on-one with DMA staff in order to privately address concerns in a different setting. As of now, a CAP/C proposal is being drafted and will be posted for public comment soon. Visit the CAP/C 1915(c) Waiver web page for more information.
