    Upcoming Developmental Disabilities Individualized Supports Waiver (ISW)

    Tuesday, August 29, 2017 11:25 AMAnonymous

    Alaska Senior and Disability Services issued the following information this week:

    "The Alaska Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Senior and Disabilities Services (SDS) is seeking federal approval to establish a new home and community based Individualized Supports waiver (ISW) to serve up to 600 people who experience Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. This new waiver will target both individuals who are currently receiving services from the Community and Developmental Disabilities Grant (CDDG) program and individuals without supports on the Developmental Disabilities Registry and Review (DDRR). The scheduled go live date for the ISW is January 1, 2018."

    ILC STAR staff can help consumers and families get ready for this change in services.  We can help with the following steps:

    1.  Apply for and clarify the status of DD eligibility with Senior and Disability Services.

    2.  Facilitate the Registration and Review (DDRR) required to be on the list of applicants for the new Individualized Supports Waiver (ISW)

    3. Provide resources and referrals to service providers in your area.

    If you have questions contact the STAR representative for your area.  You can find out more about  ILC STAR Services on our web page.
