MassHealth and DDS are working together to amend the Children’s Autism Spectrum Disorder Waiver. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) typically approves this waiver every 5 years.
The amendments to the waiver include a meal delivery option as well as technical changes to increase flexibility for service planning and case management to occur remotely/via telehealth. You can view the amendments here.
