Transition Services are Medicaid Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) authorized through §1915(i) of the Social Security Act to assist nursing facility residents that would like to explore community-based living options.

Transition Services are non-reoccurring expenses necessary to enable an individual that is transitioning from a nursing facility or other institutional setting to the community to establish a basic household and do not constitute room and board. 

Services are available to beneficiaries residing in a nursing facility and are offered to assist in securing housing and in facilitating a successful discharge into the community.
