OBRA Services


OBRA Services are Individual Assistance Plans specifically for the specialized services provided to individuals who live in nursing facilities and who experience a developmental disability. The Omnibus Reconciliation Act of 1987 required states to eliminate inappropriate nursing home placement for persons with Developmental Disabilities. For those recipients who choose to remain in Nursing Homes, the specific services requested are the development and implementation of habilitation plans, case management and individualized services.
