Proposed Waiver Amendment – Public Comment
Senior and Disabilities Services proposes to amend the state’s four Medicaid waivers to modify selected performance measures. The performance measures collect data as evidence of the State’s compliance with federal assurances. These modifications will allow the state to collect more relevant data, and bring the performance measures into concurrence with programmatic changes to the waivers. The selected performance measures ensure that waiver enrollees meet the appropriate level of care, that recipient Plans of Care are adequate and meet assessed need, that service providers are qualified and that necessary safeguards have been taken to protect recipients’ health, safety and welfare.
Comments on the proposed changes will be accepted until 5:00 pm, September 3, 2015. All comments must be in writing and sent to:
