If you or your child receives an Innovations Waiver

  1. Once all documentation has been received & reviewed, the IDD Registry Coordinator will contact you for additional screening or to information. After all needed information is received and you have been placed on the Registry of Unmet Needs you can expect the following: 
    • A screening (the Risk Support Needs Assessment) over the phone with the Registry Coordinator. This should take less than an hour.
    • A Supports Intensity Scale. The evaluation team will contact you to set this up. It will take a couple of hours and usually takes place in your home. During this assessment, you should have at least two individuals present that know the member (can be family members or the member). 
  2. All evaluations and screenings should be completed within 90 days of the initial request for services. 
  3. The process needs to be completed within the 90 days.
  4. Once the assessments are completed and reviewed, you will receive a letter from the Registry team telling you of your status on the registry. This letter will include an effective date if placement has been approved. 
  5. If it is determined that you do not meet the eligibility criteria to be placed on the Registry of Unmet Needs, you will receive a letter stating the reason for the denial with instructions for the Appeals Process. You are encouraged to call the Registry Coordinator to discuss the decision and determine if additional documentation may assist in the process.
