Medicaid Waiver Redesign
The Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) has begun the process of redesigning Medicaid waivers through the Bureau of Developmental Disability Services (BDDS). We will share up-to-date information on the waiver redesign process, and how you can provide feedback, on this page.
BDDS has released an Initial Concept Paper regarding their efforts to redesign Indiana’s Medicaid waiver program.

Regional Feedback Sessions for Families & Self-Advocates
The Arc of Indiana, Self-Advocates of Indiana and the Indiana Institute on Disability and Community are hosting a series of sessions throughout the state to present information about the Initial Waiver Redesign Concept Paper and obtain feedback from self-advocates and family members. At each of these feedback sessions there will be a meeting specifically for self-advocates and another specifically for family members. In each session information about the concept paper will be shared and facilitators will support a group conversation about the options raised in the concept paper and what you feel are the most important things that should come out of waiver redesign.
