To maintain DDD services, the individual now has to be eligible for Medicaid.
Instead of DDD case managers, families now have Support Coordinators, although DDD case managers are still helping with some issues such as transition.
Information on the Supports Program, including the list of Support Coordinators and the Support Coordination Selection Form can be found here
Steps families can take:
Community Care waiver: email@example.com
Community Resources for People with Disabilities waiver: 1 (609) 292-4800 or 1 (609) 984-1487
Medicaid eligibility: DDD.MediEligHelpdesk@dhs.state.nj.us
Support Program – General Questions: DDD.SuppProgHelpDesk@dhs.state.nj.us
*Another good option is the NJ Division of Disability Services at 1 (888) 285-3036 and theirResources Guide
3. If families still have concerns, they can contact the Statewide Parent Advocacy Network at 1 (800) 654-SPAN.
