Ohio's County Boards of Developmental Disabilities Services are facing new regulations from the federal government's Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. These rules will change the way they operate.
The new rules prohibit County Boards from providing case management and direct services to individuals with developmental disabilities who receive federal waiver funds.
As a result, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities determined that County Boards can no longer provide the following services:
Adult day support (currently offered at our Calumet, Jergens, Kuntz, Liberty and Northview centers)
How will MCBDDS address these requirements?
Because the changes affect individuals receiving services, their families, private providers and County Board employees, the Montgomery County Board of Developmental Disabilities Services sought input from all of the previously mentioned groups and members of the community.
The input of these groups will guide the Board as it develops a plan of action and timeline to phase out these services. It will also guide the Board as it considers how to safeguard the health and safety of individuals during and after their transition to private providers.
