Children’s Redesign Transition:
This notice is to inform providers and families who have not yet transitioned to the children’s redesign services that they are at high risk of experiencing a gap in services for their child if they do not contact the Department immediately.
The final rules to discontinue children’s developmental therapy, intensive behavioral intervention (IBI), and developmental disabilities service coordination have been approved by the 2013 Idaho Legislature and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). This means these services for children will end on June 30, 2013.
There are still over 2,000 families who have not transitioned, as well as provider agencies that have not started delivering the new services. It is important to take the steps now to begin the new program or services will no longer be available to you on July 1, 2013.
Families Need to Know:
- Families must contact their local Department of Health and Welfare’s Division of Family and Community Services (FACS) office to schedule an appointment as soon as possible. See Regional Contacts on this website for contact information.
- Families with a scheduled appointment will be the first priority.
- The eligibility and planning process takes up to 90 days, but may take longer given the volume of children enrolling at once.
