Assessing Virginia's Disability Services

2011 Assessment of the Disability Services System in Virginia

Assessment CoverThe Virginia Board for People with Disabilities, the Commonwealth’s Developmental Disabilities (DD) Council, is pleased to provide its 2011 Assessment of the Disability Services System in Virginia. This latest edition features a new chapter largely consolidating coverage of services provided through the Medicaid public insurance program. Medicaid was covered primarily in the Community Supports chapter of previous editions, but other chapters included significant amounts of Medicaid information as well. Coverage of Information and Advocacy Resources has been reformatted and is now contained in an appendix to the Assessment.

Like the previous editions, the 2011 Assessment describes disability services and supports that are primarily—but not exclusively—funded, operated, licensed, regulated, or contracted for by state agencies. For each service topic, it details eligibility requirements, how services are accessed and delivered, the types of services available, costs and payment sources, and oversight and quality assurance responsibilities. Each chapter provides longitudinal data showing trends in utilization and expenditures for specific services, as appropriate and available. A reference list that includes key websites concludes each chapter. As requested by readers of previous editions, online links to key reports and programs are also included within the body of each chapter.
