Legislators discuss disability waiver redesign

SHERIDAN — Sheridan County legislators have scheduled a listening session to meet with residents who have concerns about the redesign of developmental disability waivers being conducted by the Wyoming Department of Health.

The redesign is required by Senate Enrolled Act 82, which was passed by the Wyoming Legislature in 2013. It will affect the Medicaid Home and Community Based Waiver Programs that serve people with developmental disabilities and acquired brain injuries.

The department of health is required to create two separate waiver programs, including one for supportive services and one for comprehensive services, that will optimize services for current clients and extend services to people currently on a waiting list, according to a short summary about the redesign published by the Wyoming Department of Health.

Clients, caretakers and anyone who would like to discuss the proposed changes and any concerns are invited to attend.

The listening session will be held at 6 p.m. Monday at the Sheridan Senior Center, 211 Smith Street in Sheridan.
