New Jersey Seeking Providers
The New Jersey Department of Human Services Division of Developmental Disabilities will be shifting to a Medicaid-based, fee-for-service system beginning this July. This transition includes the launch of the division’s new Supports Program, a Medicaid waiver program that will fund a wide array of disability-related services for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities aged 21 and older.
Many of the New Jersey-based providers are in the process of becoming Medicaid-approved, so that they can continue to offer services in the new system. In addition, New Jersey is very interested in reaching out-of-state providers who might have an interest in – and capacity for – providing disability-related services in New Jersey. They are developing a Prospective Provider Welcome Packet, which can be available to Pennsylvania providers interested in these opportunities. For information, contact Diane Flynn, NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities, or 609-689-6714.
