Accessible Resource: Innovations Waiver Changes

Posted by The Arc of North Carolina

Got two minutes? Many of you are concerned about the recent changes to the Innovations Waiver.

Disability Rights NC put together two short, two-minute videos, about the new Base Budgets and Changes to the Innovations Waiver. It also includes a new guide that provides extensive information about the Innovations Waiver changes including information:

    • • How your Base Budget was created;
      • How you may be able to get your Base Budget changed; and
      • What to do if you do not agree with the Individual Support Plan your Care Coordinator created for you.

Bottom line: The Base Budget is NOT a cap, but a guideline. Ask for what you need. Your Care Coordinator must assist you in requesting the services you want.
