The goal of the Adult Developmental Disabilities Care Management Program is to assist adults with developmental disabilities in getting the right care at the right place at the right cost with the right outcomes.
To find out what budget a participant gets, the tool looks at everyone who has been on the program to see what they have spent for different approved services. The tool then groups those people who have similar needs according to the answers on the assessment form. Those participants with similar needs should have similar budgets. The budget is set based on what has been spent by those with similar needs. An amount above the set budget may be added or removed for changes that may have happened because of program or rule changes. Once the budget is set, a participant can have their budget increased if they can show that they have certain health and safety needs that cannot be met with the set budget.
For more technical information on the budet methodology please see the Adult Developmental Disabilities Individualized Budget Model Analysis.
