HHSC Adopts Rules in Deaf-Blind with Multiple Disabilities Program

HHSC has adopted rules in the Deaf-Blind with Multiple Disabilities (DBMD) Program, effective Feb. 26, 2023. The rules implement the federal Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) settings requirements and moved the DBMD Program rules from the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Title 40, Social Services and Assistance to Title 26, Health and Human Services.

The new DBMD Program rules can be located at 26 TAC Chapter 260.
