New Rules from OPWDD regarding Self-Direction budget and services Out-of_State

OPWDD has revised the rules that apply to using your SD budget and services out-of-state. Beginning January 1, 2020, the following changes apply:

Any request submitted after the date of the out-of-state request will be retrned and will not be reimbursed.

If staff are present during the out-of-state trip, they can only work within the same scope, frequency and duration of their responsibilities, as they do when in State.

For those who live very close to a neighboring State, we can approve a blanket out of state request for a specific time period for day trips. However, we will then require that you record the date and location of the neighboring out-of-state trip(s) on the monthly summary notes to serve as documentation for reimbursement. Otherwise, they may be returned.
