The infographic above illustrates our activity for this past
State Fiscal Year of 2016 (July 1, 2015 - June 30, 2016.)
What we've accomplished...
Since June of 2011, BIAMD has been providing waiver support and transitional case management to transition individuals who are eligible to receive the
Waiver for Individuals with Brain Injury
. In May 2015, the state expressed interest in BIAMD piloting
an evidence based assessment tool (modeled on a
modified MPAI) to determine the feasibility of better
determining the service needs and eligibility of Marylanders
interested in the Waiver for Individuals with Brain Injury.
The ability to use this
assessment tool opened up additional avenues
for Marylanders with a brain injury to obtain waiver services.
This tool now allows us to further standardize the
application process while allowing us to better discover
Marylanders needing services in heretofore under-served
We have been able to assist in the transition of 9 individuals with brain injuries out of long-term care facilities, homelessness, or other inappropriate circumstances. These individuals now live in a home, in their own room, with access to food, fellowship, and appropriate assistance. This transformational work manifests our mission by providing help, hope, and healing to Maryland's brain injury community.
