Public Comment Sought for Medicaid Intellectual Disabilities Waiver Amendment
November 22, 2019
The Alabama Medicaid Agency is seeking public comment on its proposal to amend the Alabama Home and Community-Based Intellectual Disabilities Waiver (ID Waiver).
The waiver supports Alabama citizens who have a diagnosis of Intellectual Disabilities and who would otherwise require the level of care offered in an Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities (ICF/IID) institution to remain in the community. The waiver provides services such as day services and in-home supports.
A copy of the proposed changes can be found on the Alabama Medicaid Agency website. Click here to view waiver documents

Written comments regarding the proposed waiver amendment are welcome and should be mailed to Samantha McLeod, Associate Director via mail to: Alabama Medicaid Agency, Long Term Care Division, P.O. Box 5624, Montgomery, Alabama 36103-5624 or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Comments will be available for public review at http://www.medicaid.alabama.gov/ under the tab LTC/Waivers.
