Information Letter No. 17-24 DADS has published its latest information letter directed to Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities (DBMD) Program Providers. The letter outlines the Texas Health and Human Services Commission requirements for the DBMD program providers to perform certain activities related to participant surveys in the DBMD Program and to complete a provider survey. HHSC will schedule face-to-face visits with these people to survey them about the services they receive and their experiences in the DBMD Program.
According to the HSCB regulations site: The DBMD program provides home and community-based services to people who are deaf-blind with multiple disabilities as a cost-effective alternative to institutional placement. The program focuses on increasing opportunities for consumers to communicate and interact with their environment.
HHSC recently requested and received information from DBMD program providers regarding individuals in the DBMD Program receiving licensed
assisted living (19) or licensed home health assisted living (19E).
The Participant and Provider Surveys details can be found in the Letter here
