HHSC has adopted rules in the Home and Community-based Services (HCS) Program, effective March 1, 2023. The rules implement the federal Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) settings requirements and moved the HCS Program rules from the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) Title 40, Social Services and Assistance to Title 26, Health and Human Services.

The new HCS Program rules can be located at 26 TAC Chapter 263.
