Children's Long-Term Support (CLTS) Waiver Program Administrative Authority and Quality Improvement

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) approved the Children’s Long-Term Support (CLTS) Waiver Program § 1915(c) (PDF) five-year renewal application and the concurrent § 1915(b)(4) waiver application (PDF) for the sole use of county employed or subcontracted support and service coordinators. The approved waiver period is effective April 1, 2017, through December 31, 2021.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) has amended the CLTS Waiver Program § 1915(c) waiver application. This amendment meets the CMS requirement for DHS to implement a statewide uniform rate methodology for most CLTS waiver services.
