Senate: The Department of Social and Health Services Developmental Disabilities Administration (DSHS-DDA) currently provides employment and day support services to approximately 350 individuals using state-only funding. A majority of these individuals are eligible for Medicaid waiver services funded partially with state dollars and partially with federal dollars. This item transitions eligible state-only employment and day program clients to the Basic Plus waiver to capture allowable funding. This item also preserves a smaller state-only program for those individuals unable to meet waiver eligibility standards.
