Delaware Department of Health and Social Services:
Request for Strategic Planning Public Input
The Delaware Department of Health and Social Services has developed the foundation of a strategic plan. The Department conducted internal and external focus group interviews, stakeholder and employee surveys, and an inventory analysis of the Department's 11 divisions and 193 individual programs and services.
To get the broadest possible input, the Department is now reaching out for public feedback. The plan's draft commitment, goals and objectives can be located at https://dhss.delaware.gov/dhss/ddds/dhssstrategicplanpublicinput.pdf.
We ask for your feedback not only about the parts of the plan drafted so far, but also for your suggestions about specific strategic strategies that should be put into place to meet the goals and objectives.
You can share your comments, via email, on the draft content, as well as potential strategies to: DHSS_TownHall@delaware.gov.
We also invite you to share this request for input so that the Department can obtain a wide range of perspectives.
This link is to the complete DDDS Medicaid HCBS Lifespan Waiver 7th renewal, 2nd amendment application that was approved by CMS. The Lifespan Waiver Amendment, which was amendment 1, adds several family support services geared toward individuals with IDD who are living in the family home. Amendment 1 also adds waiver slots to enable individuals who are receiving DDDS day services to enroll in the waiver. Individuals can receive family support services in addition to the day services they are currently receiving. Amendment 2 enabled individuals who enroll in the DDDS Lifespan Waiver and are living in the family home to remain enrolled with a Medicaid Managed Care Organization (MCO) to continue to receive their non-waiver Medicaid benefits.
