The Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) is issuing this alert to providers and other qualified entities interested in becoming a Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities (DBMD) provider of residential services in Region 7, the Austin area. DBMD is a Medicaid waiver program serving individuals with deaf-blindness with an additional disability resulting in a need for DBMD services.
DADS has been notified that there is a need for a provider in the Austin area to serve 12 individuals under the Licensed Home Health Assisted Living service category of the DBMD Program.
