Subject: DBMD Amendment Approval
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!
