Public Notice Regarding Amendments to the Aged and Disabled Waiver to Increase Assisted Living Rates and Member Slots

In April 2017, the Indiana Family and Social Service Administration’s Division of Aging (DA) intends to submit a proposed amendment to the Aged and Disabled (A&D) waiver to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for consideration. The amendment to the A&D waiver includes information regarding a five percent provider rate increase for the Assisted Living service effective June 30, 2017. In addition, the state will request an additional 2,000 slots for waiver year four and an additional 2,991 slots for waiver year five of the A&D waiver to continue to meet demand for services.

The 30-day public comment period will run from February 22, 2017, to March 24, 2017. Comments may be emailed to DAComments@fssa.IN.gov or mailed to the address below:
