“Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Waitlist and Strategic Plan Update”
~~“The Department has developed a new eligibility determination assessment, which wi
be piloted in 2016. Additional assessment modules have been developed to assist with the support planning and cover such areas interest in employment, participant direction services, and assess areas of housing, health, and personal story. This process will be used with the Supports Intensity Scale assessment, and processes are being developed to minimize duplication of assessments and time for an individual to be assessed.
The Department has also developed a No Wrong Door implementation plan to streamline how individuals access the long term services and supports systems. The
Department has been awarded an implementation grant which includes plans to
develop 3-5 No Wrong Door pilot sites, which will handle eligibility determinations,
intake and referral, options counseling, among other tasks not related to case management.”
