Role of the Intervener in Home and Community
This past Wednesday, December 3rd, NCDB & NFADB partnered on the third and final webinar of their 2014 Partners in Action series. Entitled The Role of the Intervener in Home and Community across the Lifespan, the presentation addressed quality of life issues that families often face when trying to obtain individualized services for their child or young adult in the school, home and community environments. Of particular interest to many in the audience was information shared on how to get a Medicaid waiver for intervener services. We learned that Texas already allows for this and New Mexico is close to providing it as well. If you or anyone in your state has additional information on Medicaid dollars covering intervener expenses, please share!
