Public comment period for CIH waiver amendment

Family Voices urges you to share your voice when given the opportunity to comment on public policy. DDRS has posted notification that they are currently accepting comments on the CIH waiver amendment. We believe this might have been posted November 15, but we were not notified via any sort of correspondence from DDRS. If it was indeed posted that day, there is only a 30 day comment period. So, we suggest sending any comments you might have to DDRS prior to December 15.

The Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) has made a commitment to transparency and public input in the policy development process. As a result, all new policies and policy updates will be posted on this page for public review and comment. The public comment period will last 30 business days from the date of posting, after which all policies will be removed from the page, reviewed based on the public input, finalized and posted onto the DDRS policy page.

This amendment appears to address revisions to the amendment, as requested by CMS. One of the issues that is being clarified is transportation services. More revisions are outlined in the appendix section at the beginning of the amendment.
