"FFFF.  Effective July 1, 2014, the Department of Medical Assistance Services shall have the authority to provide up to six months of case management services under the Intellectual Disability waiver program to transition individuals from Virginia’s Training Centers and other facilities into the community. Prior to the discharge process, services must include requirements that case managers provide no fewer than three community options to each individual/family, explain the Department of Justice Settlement Agreement to family members, support the family in choosing appropriate options for their loved one, provide extensive contact with the respective training center staff, input information into a Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services database and field myriad information calls from providers who are interested in supporting the individual in the community.  Funding shall also be used to cover the discharge process after community services are selected."

(This amendment provides funding to allow up to 6 months of Intellectual Disability (ID) Case Management services for individuals transitioning from Virginia’s Training Centers and other facilities into the community. Case management services are required to be provided prior to and after discharge to improve the process of transitioning an individual from training centers to the community. Currently only three months are provided for case management services, but most individuals require six months of transition time.)
