Keep an eye out for this, you will need to respond. Make sure you have a written record. Send a letter or email. Say yes. We still need waiver services. Keep us on the list.

 

    • If anything changes with your health, abilities, or situation, call your HSD office and tell them about the change.If it makes your needs more urgent, you might be able to move up on the wait list. For example:

      • Have you been put in the hospital?

      • Have you started to have emotional issues?

      • Have your skills gotten worse?

      • Has your behavior become a problem?

  • Keep your eyes out for letters or phone calls from the HSD office. Make sure to reply if they ask you to. DON'T MISS YOUR CHANCE TO ACCEPT A WAIVER!
