We’ve heard you…

We thank all of you who participated in the statewide stakeholder town hall meetings providing insightful recommendations and feedback to further develop a robust self-directed service delivery model framework. As a result, Amendment #2 has been updated to expand Individual and Family Directed Goods and Services. Some of the additional resources will include:

  1. Fitness memberships
  2. Fitness items that can be purchased at most retail stores
  3. Toothbrushes or electric toothbrushes
  4. Weight loss programs and services other than food
  5. Dental services recommended by a licensed dentist and not covered by health insurance
  6. Nutritional consultation and supplements recommended by a licensed professional in the relevant field
  7. Therapeutic interventions to maintain or improve function, such as art, music, dance, therapeutic swimming, or horseback riding with a recommendation from a licensed professional in the relevant field

Individual and Family-Directed Goods and Services relate to a need or goal identified in the Person-Centered Plan; maintain or increase independence; promote opportunities for community living and inclusion; and are not available under a waiver service or Medicaid State Plan service. Additional information will be provided for the effective date of Amendment #2.
