Model Cooperative Agreements Between VR Agency and Medicaid, Mental Health, and Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Agencies

~~Title I of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended by Title IV of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires that the state vocational rehabilitation (VR) agency include in its State Plan an assurance that it has entered into a formal cooperative agreement with the State agency responsible for administering the State Medicaid plan and the State agency with primary responsibility for providing services and supports for individuals with mental health needs, intellectual disabilities and developmental disabilities, with respect to the delivery of VR services, including extended services for individuals with the most significant disabilities. In addition, the State plan must assure that the Governor, in consultation with the entity responsible for the state VR program and other appropriate agencies, will ensure that an interagency agreement or other mechanism for interagency coordination take effect between the designated State VR unit and any appropriate public entity, including the State entity responsible for administering the State Medicaid program, to ensure the provision of VR services.
