Additional CAP MR/DD Waiver Slots Released

Important information  for families who are on the Cap MR/DD waiting list.

The new Cap MR/DD waiver slots that were funded by the General Assembly are being released  to the LMEs for immediate use.

The Division of Mental Health/Developmental Disabilities/ Substance Abuse Services ( Division of MH/DD/SAS) is allocating an additional 950 Supports Waiver slots and 225 Comprehensive Waiver slots.

The number of Cap MR/DD slots distributed to each LME  is based on a formula developed by the General Assembly to  equalize the distribution of slots across the state.

If you are on the Cap MR/DD waiting list:

1. Contact your case manger and LME Developmental Disabilities Coordinator  to make sure your Cap application is up-to-date.

2. Check that your application has a current psychological and any other important  information about your family member with autism and your family.

3. Ask if your LME is using the new prioritization tool
