On April 1, 2017 the Department of Human Services (DHS) submitted the renewals of the Consolidated and Person/Family Directed Support (P/FDS) waivers to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). The submitted waivers include modifications that were made as a result of the more than 2,800 comments received and are available via the links below. CMS has 90 days to review the renewal applications for the Consolidated and P/FDS waivers and changes may occur to the content based upon discussions with CMS during the approval process. ODP will inform all stakeholders when CMS has officially approved the Consolidated and P/FDS Waivers and will make the approved Waivers available at that time.
On May 16, 2017 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) sent two Informal Requests for Additional Information (IRAI) to ODP for the Consolidated and P/FDS waivers. ODP responses to the IRAI for each waiver were sent to CMS on June 1, 2017. The response documents can be found at the links below:
