How It WorksPrint this page
There are five main steps in the process to get the supports you need:
- Step One: Get Access to Services
You must be eligible to receive Medicaid services and enrolled in the DD Waiver.
- Step Two: Assess Your Support Needs
You are interviewed to assess your support needs. Learn more about What to Expect at Your Assessment, Preparing for the Assessment, and More About SIS.
- Step Three: Get a NM DDW Group Assignment with Suggested Services
Each DDW Participant, case manager, and guardian (as applicable) will receive a DD Waiver Planning Packet.
A DD Waiver Planning packet includes the following:
- Informational Instructions
- Notice that the DDW Participant’s existing services and benefits will continue in effect until the resolution of the procedures required for review of service plans and budgets
- A report called My Supports Profile
- NM SIS Assessment Checklist
- Notice of the DDW group assignments and associated service package
- Notice of proposed annual budget for that DDW Participant
- A copy of the DDW Group Assignment Decision Rules
- Notice of Right to Appeal
- Step Four: Create Your Service Plan
You create an Individual Service Plan (ISP) and receive services. Learn more about Selecting a Provider including useful questions to ask.
- Step Five: Review the Results
You review the results and make adjustments to your plan as needed. In addition, DDSD also reviews the results to help make the system work even better.
