What is Fix The List?
People with developmental disabilities and their families have repeatedly made their opinions clear: Ohio's waiting list for Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) waivers is overly complex and in need of simplification.
The current waiting list confuses people with developmental disabilities and their families, misleads advocates, and hinders efforts by policymakers to direct resources to where they are needed most.
That is why the Ohio Association of County Boards joined a coalition to modernize Ohio's failed waiting list. This coalition includes groups representing people with developmental disabilities, parents, families, advocates, county boards of DD, providers, and the State of Ohio.
Through the efforts of this coalition and informed by the feedback of people with developmental disabilities and their families, we believe that a new approach to the way Ohio’s HCBS waiver waiting list operates is needed. It’s time to Fix The List.
