Public Hearing: Proposed regulations to Mi Via waiver

The New Mexico Department of Human Services (HSD) submitted amendments to the Mi Via waiver to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid for approval. The amendments include:

  • Change the definition of developmental disabilities;
  • Require individuals who want to be Independent Contractors to provide Customized In Home Living Services, and other certain services, to submit an IRS SS8 form to determine if they are eligible to be a contractor; 
  • Use of debit cards to pay for goods and services;
  • Add dental services to non-covered services.

HSD has proposed changes to the Mi Via waiver regulations to implement these amendments when approved by CMS. The regulations will become effective June 1, 2013. Before the regulations can become effective, there will be a pubic hearing:
