The amendment for the Medicaid 1915(c) Traditional Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities and Developmental Disabilities (IID/DD) Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Waiver has been approved by CMS. The amendment will be effective 4/1/2020.
We are continuing to work on the policy for the Medical Acuity Tier rate add-on. We hope to have it available in February.
The amendment will remain on the website in draft form until it is effective 4/1/2020. Here is the link to the draft waiver: http://www.nd.gov/dhs/services/disabilities/docs/draft-amendment-traditional-iid-dd-hcbs-waiver-proposed-effective-4-1-2020.pdf
