DDDS is pleased to announce that the amendment to the DDDS Medicaid Home and Community Based Services Waiver to create the Lifespan Waiver was approved by CMS on May 25, 2017. The Lifespan Waiver Amendment will add several family support services geared toward individuals with IDD who are living in the family home. The amendment will also add waiver slots to enable individuals who are receiving DDDS day services to enroll in the waiver. They will be able to receive family support services in addition to the day services they are currently receiving. The effective date of the amendment will be July 1, 2017.
Thank you to everyone that took the time to submit feedback on the application during the public comment period. Many changes were made to the application as a result of the feedback we received from the public.
