My Life My Community **UPDATED**

DBHDS MyLife MyCommunity Landing Page

DBHDS is committed to being good listeners, good partners and good stewards of the public resources entrusted to the agency. As we meet the challenges that lie ahead, we are dedicated to a system re-design that truly provides opportunity for citizens to receive the supports they need to live full lives in the community.

As of January 2014, the second phase of the My Life, My Community has begun. This will involve a cost study to review service reimbursement rates and result, most likely, in a revised rate schedule. In addition, DBHDS and DMAS will explore options for developing fair and reliable means resource allocation. We are hopeful that a new waiver system will be implemented in January 2016.
