Description

DMAS; steps to facilitate transition between two programs. Directs the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) to establish a process for (i) conducting a comprehensive needs assessment of a person who chooses to participate in the Medicaid Works program to determine the services such person may need to live and fully participate in his community and (ii) developing a plan of support for such person to guide the person in selection of the best waiver program for his needs. The bill also requires DMAS to develop processes to (a) enable a person who transitions from a Home and Community-Based Services waiver service to the Medicaid Works waiver program to retain his Home and Community-Based Services waiver slot for up to 180 days following the date of such transition and (b) give priority to individuals previously receiving services through the Home and Community-Based Services waiver program who transitioned to the Medicaid Works program and who subsequently seek to resume services through the Home and Community-Based Services waiver program.
