The Division of Services for People with Disabilities (DSPD), in partnership with Utah Medicaid, is completing the planning process for implementing caregiver compensation as an ongoing program. We need your help reviewing our draft plan and providing feedback.
Our draft proposal outlines a program administered through a 3-tiered reimbursement system. Tiers in this plan are determined by the level of assessed need, based on Utah Comprehensive Assessment of Needs and Strengths (UCANS) assessment scores and the Comprehensive Brain Injury Assessment (CBIA) scores. This new ongoing program will look different from the temporary program that was created in response to the public health emergency. As a result, some people may see their caregiver compensation funding levels change as we move to more standardized criteria. Be assured that DSPD will use the entire ongoing legislative appropriation from the 2023 General Session for this program.
