DD Waiver Services Division of Long-Term Care Department of Medical Assistance Services 2013 1

2 Objectives of Training
Train in-home and day support providers on the associated requirements for Individual and Family Developmental Disabilities Support (DD) Waiver.

3 Development of the DD waiver

4 Development of the (DD) Waiver
DMAS was directed by the 1999 General Assembly session to develop a new waiver for persons with developmental disabilities. DMAS formed a work group consisting of consumers, advocates, providers and state agencies that met nine times from May 10, 1999 through May 18, 2000 to discuss waiver development issues.

5 Work Group Goals Option to institutionalization
Consumer-directed whenever possible Services in the workplace when possible Individually tailored services Coordinate with schools and other training areas Maximize other financial resources Minimize duplication of resources

6 Development of the (DD) Waiver
DMAS submitted a report to the 2000 General Assembly session proposing the development of a new waiver. DMAS requested and received approval from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid services (CMS) in May 2000 to begin implementation of the DD waiver on July 1, 2000. This waiver would be more consumer-driven and provide additional supports to families.

7 Development of DD Waiver
In order to get waiver approval from CMS, there must be an alternative institutional placement. For the DD waiver the alternative placement must be an Intermediate Care Facility for the Mentally Retarded (ICF/MR).

8 Eligible for (DD) Waiver
The individual must be 6 years of age and older and meet the “related conditions” requirements of C.F.R. § , including autism; May not have a diagnosis of intellectual disability (ID) as defined by the American Association on Developmental Disabilities (AAIDD)

11 In-home Residential Support Services Service Definition

12 In-home Residential Support Service Definition
Training and assistance or specialized supervision Most training occurs in an individual’s home or residence considered to be his/her home In-home support does not include room and board Enables an individual to acquire, improve, or maintain: Activities of daily living (ADLs) Access community resources Adapt to the community/daily environment Safety skills and health status

13 In-home Residential Support Services
Supplemental to the care provided by a parent or similar caregiver May support an individual whose level of independence does not require a primary caregiver

14 In-home Residential Support Service Definition
May not be provided for a continuous 24-hour period Training is provided in the home or community Supports are delivered on a 1:1 staff to individual ratio In home should not take the role of the parent’s care it only supplements.

15 Person Centered Approach
This service should provide empowerment and support to the individual so that he or she may develop his or her own individual lifestyle Help the individual plan not just for this year’s CSP meeting but think past today. It is about the individual’s future. Examples: Individual wants to move out from parent. What are you doing to prepare the individual? What’s the plan? Have you started talking with the parents about the goal? Remember, the goals and objectives should be focused on the individual. Not generic goals used for everyone.
