The survey will be available from April 1, 2015 to May 15 2015. Participation is anonymous and only takes a few minutes to complete. Based on the age of your family member and the system they are being served under you will be automatically directed to the age appropriate survey.
This survey will only make an impact to policymakers and systems planners if families from all over the state share their views and needs.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued a final rule on January 16, 2014 to ensure that Medicaid's home and community-based services (HCBS) programs provide full access to the benefits of community living and offer services in the most integrated settings. New Jersey's Transition Plan outlines the steps required to come into full compliance with the final rule by March 17, 2019 for Medicaid's New Jersey 1115 Comprehensive Waiver Demonstration and the 1915 (c) Community Care Waiver.
All states are required to submit their plan by March 17, 2015. A 30-day public comment period as part of Medicaid compliance with the HCBS setting requirements closed on February 26, 2015. New Jersey’s proposed plan outlines the steps needed to come into full compliance by March 17, 2019 for its New Jersey 1115 Comprehensive Waiver Demonstration (includes Supports Program (SP), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) pilot, and Comprehensive Waiver - Individuals with Intellectual/ Developmental Disabilities and a co-occurring Mental Illness (ID/DD-MI) pilot) and the 1915 (c) Community Care Waiver (CCW).
