Save the MR/DD Waiver Program
Petition Background (Preamble):
Instead, the application removes the determination of service needs from the interdisiciplinary team (which includes the participant) and puts it in the hands of an independent needs assessor at greater administrative cost to the program.
* "Meaningful participation" must include the ongoing involvement of a broad coalition of stakeholders in the decision-making process to ensure that reforms will improve participants' experience with the long-term care system. Consumers must be involved in system planning, policy development, local program management, and quality assessment.
We urge CMS to insist that West Virginia develop policy that will actually support self-direction rather than hinder it.
