Medicaid & Employment

~~“The Lifespan Waiver Amendment, (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. “
