DOH and HSD propose a three-tiered plan for people with disabilities currently waiting for assistance on the Developmental Disabilities Waiver


SANTA FE – New Mexico Department of Health (DOH) and the Human Services Department (HSD) propose implementing a three phased approach to provide temporary assistance to those on the Developmental Disabilities (DD) Waitlist first and to ultimately overhaul the DD Waiver program over a 6-year period in hopes of implementing a more sustainable program that better provides the services needed and eliminates the waitlist.
