The Family Care Waiver renewal process is underway as the current contract expires on December 31, 2019.  The Department of Health Services (DHS) is seeking comments on anything that should be added, removed, changed, etc. to improve the program.  On October 9th, WALA submitted comments on your behalf to DHS as it relates to the upcoming renewal of the Family Care Waiver Program.  Our comments are requesting 4 changes:

1. Eliminate duplication of services – nursing assessments/care management
2. Creation of special methodology rates for each distinctive group served under the family care program
3. Discharge notification requirements for MCOs
4. Grievance process/Feedback process for assisted living providers
