GENERAL SUBJECT MATTER TO BE CONSIDERED: To invite input and feedback from
Agency stakeholder groups, including self-advocates, family members, service providers, waiver
coordinators, and advocacy organizations in updating and improving the algorithm formula used
to predict resource needs for clients enrolled on the iBudget waiver and waiting list and used in
the establishment of individual budgets for individuals on the waiver. The algorithm will provide
an equitable distribution of available resources among individuals on the waiver based on an
assessment process that includes client characteristics and a valid formal assessment instrument,
and client choice of services and providers once the individual budget is determined.
Written comments may be submitted to iBudgetAlgorithm@apdcares.org.
