Statutory Authority: § 32.1-325 of the Code of Virginia; 42 USC § 1396.

Expiration Date Extended Through: August 30, 2018.

The Governor has approved the Department of Medical Assistance Services's request to extend the expiration date of the above-referenced emergency regulation for six months as provided for in § 2.2-4011 D of the Code of Virginia. Therefore, the emergency regulation will continue in effect through August 30, 2018. This extension is required in order for Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS) to continue enforcing the legislative mandate set out in the Item 306 CCCC of Chapter 780 of the 2016 Acts of the Assembly to amend the Individual and Family Developmental Disabilities Support (DD), Day Support (DS), and Intellectual Disability (ID) Waivers to initiate new waiver services. The new waiver services help DMAS meet the Commonwealth's commitments under the community integration mandate of the Americans with Disabilities Act (42 USC § 12101 et seq.), the Supreme Court's Olmstead Decision, and the 2012 Department of Justice Settlement Agreement. The emergency regulation was published in 33:2 VA.R. 97-249 September 19, 2016.
