Imagine Support Services, LLC remains open and operating. We have several direct care workers that have openings in their schedule and that would be willing and able to temporarily take on a new client. Locations and schedules don't always match up with needs, but we would very much like to keep everybody who wants to work working. And of course we want to make sure that all of our clients are served if possible. Change Request
On 04/08/2020, DDD posted some changes to the rules governing home and community based services (HCBS).
Parents of Minor Children as DCWs
AHCCCS has received approval from CMS to allow parents to receive payment for provision of HCBS services to minor children during the COVID-19 emergency. Previously DDD only allowed payment for provision of services to members 18 years and older. DDD has developed guidance for parents to utilize if they are interested in this opportunity. The guidance has been posted to the DES website in both English and Spanish. If you are interested in getting certified to provide attendant care or habilitation to your minor child, please , START HERE. If you have already filled out the application but have not yet scheduled your training, please go to the next step page.
Respite Benefit Limit Increased
The Respite hours benefit limit is increasing from 600 hours to 720 hours. Support Coordinators have been informed that the increase is available for the October 1, 2019 to September 30, 2020 benefit year. Members will be assessed for this service through the current planning process. Not all members need or will receive the maximum benefit.
DDD also asks that everyone continue to check the DDD COVID-19 webpage for frequent updates and resources related to COVID-19 and its impact on the DDD community.
