Complete an application for the Community Integration and Habilitation (CIH) or Family Supports Waiver (FSW) through the local Division of Disability and Rehabilitative Services (DDRS) Bureau of Developmental Disabilities Services (BDDS) office. A BDDS staff member will then be in contact to discuss the process for determining eligibility for the waiver. If you do not already obtain Medicaid, you will be referred to the local Division of Family Resources (DFR) to apply for Medicaid. This process can take a long time. Some clients wait up to 2 years to receive the waiver. As soon as you have a medical diagnosis, begin the application process!
Once you are Medicaid and waiver approved, you will be assigned a case manager. The case manager will contact you to complete an intake meeting. There, you will learn more about the waiver and services available to you. If recreational therapy is of interest, your case manager will pass along your information to Get Rec'd and other companies that provide the services you're interested in. A Get Rec'd therapeutic recreation specialist will contact you to schedule an intake appointment. Please know that there are wait lists for therapeutic recreation at times.
A Get Rec'd therapeutic recreation specialist will contact you to schedule an interview at a location of your choice, whether it be at your home or in the community. The goal of the intake is to learn more about the services provide, what sessions look like, how these services will contribute to the goals of the individual, and to overall meet the therapeutic recreation specialist and see if they would be a good fit. If you would like to move forward with Get Rec'd, you will need to sign a pick list, which is provided by your case manager..
A pick list is a list of providers that you pick from to receive waiver services. In this case, you will pick Get Rec'd to receive therapeutic recreation. After a pick list is submitted to the state, a Notice of Action (NOA) and a Person-Centered Individualized Support Plan (PCISP) is generated. The NOA is an explanation of budget(s) for each service you've chosen, and the PCISP provides details about what is most important to an individual, which includes activities and potential goals.
Once the NOA and PCISP are generated, Get Rec'd LLC will receive a copy of these state documents. The therapeutic recreation specialist that you met during your intake session will then be notified that services are ready to begin, and that therapeutic recreation specialist will contact you to schedule your very first session. Congratulations, you are officially receiving therapeutic recreation services from Get Rec'd LLC.
