Hoosiers invited to participate in online survey about Medicaid waivers
View the Indiana University Media Release (February 9, 2009)
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- All interested stakeholders are invited to help define the design of future Medicaid Waivers for people with developmental disabilities in Indiana.
One way to provide input is to complete the online Medicaid Waiver Survey, currently being conducted by the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community for the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA). This is part of the FSSA's commitment to soliciting broad-based input for the waiver renewal process.
Medicaid waivers provide individualized services, paid for through the government's Medicaid program, that enable people to live at home rather than in institutions.
How to participate
If you are a person with a disability currently receiving waiver supports or are on the waiting list, a family member, or a provider of waiver services, you are invited to submit your ideas to the conversation via the online survey. Visit the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community's Web site at www.iidc.indiana.edu to view a video explaining the waiver input process and take the survey. You'll find the link under the "Institute Spotlight" section.
The survey is also available in print form. Copies are available to download on the above Web site. For alternative formats, please email the Indiana Institute at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 812-855-6508.
