Do you you need DD services? Are you enrolled on one of the DD waivers but don't know what is offered? Maybe you just want to understand know how the state supports people with developmental disabilities?

This workshop is for you. We will give a brief overview of what Medicaid covers (it is not just Apple Health!), then explain "the waivers" - what is on them and how to access services.

"Waivers" is shorthand for Medicaid home- and community-based waiver services. The biggest ones for the DD community are Individual and Family Services; Basic Plus; and Core. The "waiver" refers to waiving access to institutional care in favor of care in the community.

Please note: You might also be interested in our spring Let's Talk events where you can share your experiences using or trying to access services for people with developmental disabilities.

The Creating Connections series is produced by the outreach team at The Arc of King County. Everyone is welcome and events are always free. We meet monthly in Federal Way, Bellevue and Seattle.
