Let CMS Know: Employment in the Community is Important!

CMS, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, will soon be issuing guidance regarding how Medicaid funds can be used for employment. It’s very important that CMS hear from you! APSE members and all like-minded advocates need to ask CMS to fully support Employment First, with support for employment fully integrated in the general workforce as the first and preferred option in the use of Medicaid funds.
