Adult DD waiver transition announcement (4-24-2014): 

IBA letters were sent out to Adult DD participants and Child DD participants ages 20.5 and older. If a letter was not received or you think there is an error in the IBA letter, please talk to your case manager who can discuss the issue with the Division. 

REMINDER:  All plans must be submitted to the Division no later than August 27, 2014 so the Division has 30 days to approve the plan for the Comprehensive or Supports waiver transition. If no plan has been approved by September 28, 2013, then the participant will not be on a waiver.  For questions on the IBA letter, the CRT, or the new IBA methodology, please review the information we posted below on "Understanding your new IBA".

Response on Wait List Funding from 2014 Legislative Session


 

· The wait list funding from the legislature goes into effect July 1, 2014. Funding letters will not be distributed until the money is available.

· Funding letters will be sent out on a priority basis: people who meet emergency criteria are funded first, then the people who have been waiting the longest, until the appropriation (new funding) is fully committed.

· Not all persons on the wait list will receive a funding letter. We will fund everyone waiting 18 months or longer as of September 30, 2013 onto the Supports waiver, unless they meet the eligibility and emergency criteria for the Comprehensive Waiver.

· Funding letters will be mailed out over a three month period after July 1.

· A plan of care must be submitted to the Division within 3 months from the date of the funding letter or the funding opportunity will be lost and re-application for the waiver is required.
