Overview of Waiting List Changes

The new Waiting List Rule went into effect on September 1, 2018. County boards will assess the needs of the people currently on their waiting list to determine if someone has a current need according to the new assessment tool. If the person is determined to have a current need they will be placed on the waiting list.  If a person’s needs are currently being met, their name will not be added to the new waiting list. The change in the waiting list rule will not affect anyone who is already enrolled on the waiver.

If you have questions about this change, please contact your Service Coordinator or Service and Support Administrator. If you do not have a DCBDD contact assigned to you, please call Intake and Eligibility at 740-201-3601 for assistance.
