"AA.  The Commissioner of the Department of  Behavioral Health and Developmental Services shall amend the eligibility requirements for the Individual and Family Support program to ensure access for any individual with an intellectual disability (ID) or developmental disability (DD) without regard to whether the individual is on a waiting list for community-based ID or DD Medicaid waiver services."

(This amendment requires access to the Individual and Family Support program regardless of whether an individual with an intellectual or developmental disability is on a waiting list for ID or DD waiver services. Current regulation only provides access to the program if you are on a waiting list for the ID or DD waiver. This amendment will provide access to 935 individuals who need community-based services.)
