Presentation on theme: "DSPD oversees the following business processes: Contact Process – This occurs whenever someone contacts DSPD to inquire about services for themselves,"— Presentation transcript:

1 DSPD oversees the following business processes: Contact Process – This occurs whenever someone contacts DSPD to inquire about services for themselves, a relative, or someone for whom they are legally responsible. This process also includes people seeking referrals to other agencies. Intake Process – When a consumer makes application for DSPD services this process starts by collecting information that is used to assess a consumers eligibility for services. Over time, this information may be updated to reflect changes in the consumers status or condition. Eligibility Process – When sufficient information has been gathered, an eligibility decision is made. If the consumer is found to meet State requirements, they are placed on the waiting list for services. If they do not meet State requirements, they are notified and the process ends. When transitioning into Services, this process also covers Financial Eligibility, Medicaid Eligibility, and a Level of Care Determination.

2 Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD) DSPD oversees the following business processes (Continued): Waiting List Process – When a consumer is found eligible for State services, they are placed on the DSPD waiting list. Depending on their level of need(s), and funds available, they may be on the waiting list for some time. This process includes an annual contact process to determine ongoing eligibility to remain on the waiting list and to identify the specific services the person is waiting for. Support Coordination Process – When a consumer enters services, this process begins with and includes building an annual Person Centered Support Plan for them along with an appropriate budget(s). Supports and services are arranged on the consumers behalf with providers and family. This process also includes Medicaid disenrollment, and closing or ending of services when a consumer no longer meets eligibility criteria.
