Developmental Disabilities Medicaid Waiver (DD Waiver)


The DD Waiver serves individuals in New Mexico with developmental disabilities and mental retardation. Once an individual is allocated to the Waiver, they (and/or their legal guardian) work with an interdisciplinary team to develop a service plan. The individual then chooses providers to implement the plan and to assist them in attaining their goals.
