The Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA) has made temporary changes to its Home and Community Based Services waivers in order to meet immediate health and safety needs during this pandemic, including:

  • Changes to Service Limitations and Restrictions
  • Remote Services and Alternative Locations
  • Provider Qualifications
  • Assessments and Service Planning

These changes are called “emergency rules.” They are meant to make it easier for people to get the help they need while reducing the risk of infection and illness. These rules end once the WA emergency declaration ends.
