We are proud to partner with the North Carolina Division of Medical Assistance (DMA) and Local Management Entity-Managed Care Organizations in presenting to you:
A Community Forum on the Supports Intensity Scale®
North Carolina's Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is improving the system of services offered to people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. NC Innovations Plus is the name given to activities undertaken to:
- Create a more equitable system
- Use resources efficiently and effectively
- Make sure people get the right support for their needs
The first step is to use an objective assessment called the Supports Intensity Scale® or SIS® to find out about the support needs of people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities participating in NC Innovations Plus. These community forums will provide the opportunity to learn more about the SIS® assessment, what an interview will be like, how to prepare for an interview as well as North Carolina specific implementation information.
