Learn About Innovations Waiver Changes, Share Opinions on IDD Issues

Medicaid Diversion

UPDATE: The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services has notified us that the changes to the Innovations waiver are now proposed to go into effect November 1 to allow for additional training and preparation, and to provide additional time for approval of the changes by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and local LME/MCOs will hold a series of listening sessions on the Innovations Waiver and other issues related to intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) during the next few months. Staff from the state and local LME/MCOs will also be there to listen to needs, concerns, and thoughts around system reform, issues with health care, services, employment, housing, crisis, or other topics facing individuals, families and others who care about individuals with autism and other IDD.

Staff will also highlight some of the upcoming changes to the Innovations Waiver, set to take place this spring. To read a previous ASNC blog post about the upcoming waiver changes, click here. An overview of the Innovations waiver and updates are found on the Innovations landing page.
