OMAP Issues COMMCARE Waiver Bulletin
November 22, 2002

The Office of Medical Assistance (OMAP) Community Care (COMMCARE) Waiver Bulletin explains the requirements and conditions of the waiver. The program, which officially began in April, can provide services in a home or community-based to adults who have traumatic brain injury. Prior to the creation of this waiver, services were available only in a special rehabilitation nursing facility; if a person had the financial resources to obtain them. The Office of Social Programs administers COMMCARE services. The bulletin describes requirements for qualified providers, consumer program and financial eligibility, and available services. It is available from the link above or by contacting Lynn Keltz at the Association.
