Subject: DBMD Amendment Approval

Hello,
 
I’m writing to provide an update about the DBMD waiver amendment.  It was 
approved by CMS on May 25th and retains the single provider model.
 
Thanks to everyone who helped us with answering CMS’ questions and offering 
feedback during this busy information-gathering process.  Special thanks to 
Vivecca Hartman for reaching out to her DBMAT friends and families and 
sending CMS a letter explaining the need to have qualified people who have a 
working knowledge of Deafblindness providing services to and interacting 
with individuals who have such unique communication needs.
 
Please share with your DBMAT friends and families!
 
Jackie
