A teleconference recording and PowerPoint from the July 19, 2016 Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) information session for amendments to the Consolidated and Person/Family Directed Support (P/FDS) Waivers.
The fifth set of amendments to Consolidated and Person/Family Directed Support (P/FDS) Waivers were approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) effective July 13, 2016 and July 8, 2016 respectively. The amendments reflected broad stakeholder input as well as changes recommended by CMS.
The Consolidated and Person/Family Directed Support waivers are scheduled to be renewed effective on July 1, 2017. ODP is drafting both waiver applications, with the plan of releasing Appendices A through H for the official public comment period from November through December. Introductory webinars were held and recorded in October 2016 prior to the start of the official public comment period to summarize planned changes and allow time for questions and answers.
