ABI Waiver Unit Shares Information for Home Care Agencies

As mentioned in a previous newsfeed post, MassHealth is soliciting services for a new waiver to care for individuals with Acquired Brain Injury in the community.

The ABI Waiver Unit at UMass Medical, which is the entity in charge of managing the waiver and disseminating related information, has released three documents (see below) to assist interested home care agencies in learning more and applying for waiver participation. The ABI Waiver Unit has indicated that they are specifically seeking speech, occupational and physical therapy services in the home.

  • ABI Description – One page summary of the state agencies and their roles in the implementation of the ABI Waivers
  • 2012 Technical Assistance Schedule – Statewide information sessions held to provide potential providers the opportunity to learn more about the Provider Enrollment Process
  • Credentialing Supplement – Outlines the submission requirements and the service specific submission requirements and defines the service expectations.

To RSVP for any of the technical assistance sessions, or to ask for more information, contact ABInetwMGr@umassmed.edu or call the UMass ABI Waiver Unit at 866-281-5602.
