Parents of youth with teens with developmental disability services
Big changes are coming to the adult DD services program in Idaho Medicaid. Are you or someone you know in the children’s DD services program now? If so, the changes to the adult program will probably affect you one day. If you or your loved one might enter the adult program in the next three years, the changes will have an especially big impact on you.
A class action lawsuit, called K.W. v. Armstrong, requires Idaho Medicaid to make the adult DD program more fair. Idaho Medicaid is working now to comply with the court’s orders in the K.W. lawsuit.
The lawyers in the lawsuit represent everyone in the adult DD program and anyone applying to the adult program. The K.W. lawyers need your feedback right now. Most of all, they need feedback from people in the children’s program who might apply to the adult program between now and 2025.
