OFA Fiscal Note
MINIMAL FISCAL IMPACT
The amendment requires the DDS and Department of Social Services (DSS) commissioners to notify, by certified mail, clients with Intellectual Disability who will become ineligible for state-assisted care at least 90 days before the date they will become ineligible or stop receiving care and help them identify and secure private funding. The notification provision is anticipated to result in a minimal fiscal impact to DDS and DSS associated with postage including certified mailing costs ($3.94 each). It is anticipated that DDS will incur postage costs of approximately $24 in FY 17 and FY 18 as the department sends approximately six such notifications annually.
