The Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent (DAIL) is seeking informal feedback on the 2019 draft Choices for Care regulations. The goal is to modernize the rules within the Medicaid Health Care Administrative Rules (HCAR) in a cleaner format. DAIL is also proposing to update the Moderate Needs Program waitlist policy from chronological to a priority system (similar to the current High Needs wait list process), as long as the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid says it is okay to do so without an amendment to our Global Commitment waiver. Please note, at this time, our goal is to avoid significant changes to the Choices for Care regulations that would also require a Global Commitment amendment. Having said that, all feedback is welcome and valued.
Please send your feedback by April 1st, 2019 to the contact listed below.
