Waiver Review Initiative
DHS developed the Waiver Review Initiative to monitor compliance with state and federal requirements for home and community-based waiver services, to identify promising practices that improve service quality for participants, track local improvements and obtain feedback about DHS.
DHS reports findings to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services about Minnesota's HCBS programs. The review provides information that DHS will use to make recommendations and set requirements for lead agencies (counties, health plans and tribes) responsible for administering waiver programs.
The Waiver Review Initiative completed one round of reviews examining all lead agencies, which administer five Medicaid aging and disability waiver programs and the Alternative Care program. The second round of waiver reviews began July 2012. All lead agencies will receive their second onsite review by 2015.
