Proposed changes to the DD waiver system.....more info

Family Voices Indiana encourages its members to learn more about proposed changes to the Support Services waiver to create the new Family Support Waiver.The proposal to CMS to make the changes was submitted on April 18, 2012.  According to DDRS, this is one way they hope to address the waiting list for the DD/Autism and Support Services waiver.

Please note that we have also provided information about how you can share your voice by providing input to DDRS during their comment period, and input to CMS as they consider the proposal. 

We recommend that you read the proposal in its entirety, but since that document is over 240 pages, we have created a document to help you understand highlights of the report. Most of the information was taken directly from the proposal. That document is embedded below.
