The Community Care Services Program (CCSP) operates under a Home and Community-Based Waiver (1915c) granted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This Waiver permits the Division of Medical Assistance to use Title XIX funds to purchase services for CCSP members who meet program requirements.
