Report Fraud


People deserve to live their lives the way they want to live them; to be treated with dignity and respect. People deserve to say where they go during the day, and to be as independent as they are able to be. People deserve to have choices.

The Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) rule creates a more outcome-oriented definition of home and community-based settings. It does not just look at location, geography or physical characteristics. It looks at how a person spends their day, where they spend their day and with whom they spend their day. The purpose of the HCBS rule is to enable people to receive services in their home and community, keeping them out of institutions.

Home and Community-Based Services will help people become more independent.

Home and Community-Based Services will help people become more integrated within in their community

Home and Community-Based Services will be based on the needs of the individual.


The South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is working with other state agencies, providers, members and their families to improve South Carolina's Home and Community-Based Services.
