Post from the Department of Social Services
Since the end of the five-year ABI 2 waiver period is 11/30/19, the Department of Social Services has initiated its customary internal process of reviewing the waiver’s covered services, utilization of services, and training and credentialing requirements for providers. Please know that each time a waiver renews, we review all aspects of the waiver to assess what is working well and what might need to be modified. We understand that some information about this process has been made public, and that there may be concerns about what this means for participants of the waiver. The Department is not taking any action currently that will result in decreasing service plans or taking services away from people. Unfortunately, this is the information that we have heard is being circulated. We intend to post notice for public comment on the waiver renewal this summer. We urge all interested parties to contribute comments. In the meantime, the Department welcomes all stakeholders to share their perspectives on the waiver by contacting Kathy Bruni: via phone at 860-424-5177 or via email to Kathy.email@example.com
