APA WF # 14-34 

Feedback Form 

Developmental Disabilities Services (DDS) policy is revised to comply with state and federal regulations regarding Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waivers for persons with intellectual disabilities or certain persons with related conditions: (1) include timeframes for how long psychological evaluations are considered valid to determine eligibility for DDS HCBS Waiver services; (2) include timeframes for reporting any address changes or other contact information to DHS; and (3) provide timeframes when an individual is removed from the Request for Waiver Services List when the individual fails to respond or does not provide DHS requested information.  Without the recommended changes, the State is out of compliance with CMS and may be in risk of losing federal funding.
