Idaho Medicaid received guidance from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) about changes in Federal law that will require Idaho Medicaid to make changes in how Children’s Developmental Disabilities (DD) Services are offered. Currently, Medicaid provides services for children with developmental disabilities through waivers granted by the federal government. With the new changes, states are being required to offer intervention services for Children’s Developmental Disabilities through Medicaid State Plans.
To assist in aligning with Federal law, Medicaid in collaboration with Family and Community Services (FACS) has established the Children’s DD Services Enhancement Project with a primary goal of moving intervention services into the Idaho Medicaid State Plan by July 1, 2019. To ensure success Medicaid and FACS recognize the importance of engaging stakeholders from the beginning to the end of the project.
This website has been established to provide ongoing information about the project and will include updates, FAQs, timelines, training opportunities, and recommendations. If you have questions or would like to request addition information fill out the contact form at the right hand side of this page.
If you have questions or need assistance navigating the Children's DD Enhancement website, please contact Sarah Spaulding at (208) 364-1965 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stakeholders are parents, advocacy groups, providers and anyone who is directly impacted by changes made to children’s DD services. For change to be successful we understand the importance of including stakeholders from the beginning to the end of the project. This website has been developed as a place where we can share information, get your feedback and address concerns.
