On August 13, 2007, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) issued new proposed rules to make several definition and rule clarifications to the rehabilitation option that Medicaid agencies use to provide services for people with mental health disorders, physical disabilities, developmental delays, and other disabilities or chronic illnesses.  In addition, the rehabilitation option package of services has been used for youth in therapeutic foster care.  The National Alliance to End Homelessness has concerns that, if this proposed rule were implemented in its current form, people experiencing homelessness would have less access to health related services.
