Children's Long-Term Support (CLTS) Waiver Amendment for Statewide Uniform Rate-Setting Initiative

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has amended the CLTS Waiver Program § 1915(c) waiver application that was approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) effective April 1, 2017, to March 31, 2022. The CLTS Waiver Program provides home and community-based services for children up to age 22 years with intellectual and developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, or severe emotional disturbance. This amendment meets the CMS requirement for DHS to implement a statewide uniform rate methodology for most CLTS waiver services.
