Re: Community Integration and Habilitation Waiver Amendment (CIH Transform)
Date: November 25, 2015
On January 4, 2016, the Indiana Family and Social Service Administration Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) intends to submit a proposed amendment to the Community Integration and Habilitation (CIH) waiver to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) for consideration.
DDRS has posted for public the CIH waiver second amendment to the DDRS Draft Policies for Public Comment webpage, along with a frequently asked questions document.
The amendment to the CIH waiver includes additional services, and clarifications to the existing services, covered under the waiver program. Due to some limitations in the actual waiver amendment not all changes to services are reflected in that document. DDRS has posted a full set of the new service definitions on the CIH Transform webpage. Each new or updated service has a link to the service definition online. There is also a comprehensive list of all services in the Service Definition Matrix posted at CIH Transform. DDRS asked that stakeholders pay particular attention to training requirements as well as provider qualifications found within each service definition.
Comments will be accepted until 4:30 p.m. EST on Monday, December 28, 2015, and may be emailed to CIHW@fssa.in.gov or mailed to the address below.
