The DADS estimate assumes that a total of 50 consumers would be served in the pilot and would be achieved via a 1915(c) waiver. DADS assumed the adult/child split to mirror those found in Home and Community-based Services (HCS) and that the planning stage would extend until February 08, after which enrollments would begin. DADS estimated that enrollments would occur evenly over 12 months (approximately 4 per month, until reaching 50). The average cost used by DADS was the HCS average monthly cost, plus the financial management cost found in the Texas Home Living consumer directed services waiver amendment (approximately $3,400). DADS assumed the method of finance to include federal funds at a match rate comparable to HCS (approximately 40/60 percent state/federal match). Additionally, DADS assumed that two (2) Program Specialist V positions would be needed starting in FY 2008. DADS used the midpoint salary for the classification in the estimate.
Acute Care Medicaid costs have not been included in this estimate.
