I/DD FAQ & Resources

Q. What are Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (I/DD)?
A. To learn more about I/DD, please visit TheArc.org.

Q.  I am not, or I’m not sure if I’m Medicaid Eligible and have heard that I may lose DDD funding.  Please explain and help!

A. DDD recently released a rule adoption for DDD determination of eligibility and this may have a huge impact on individuals who do not have Medicaid.  This includes individuals who are already receiving services through DDD funding.  Basically, the rule adoption means:


The New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) has said they want to assure families that, contrary to some misinformation that may have previously been conveyed, services currently in place for their loved ones with I/DD will not be automatically terminated.  DDD will be reviewing cases determined not Medicaid eligible and will make every effort to work through the issues. DDD has said they are firm in their position that no services will end without clear communications being made in advance to both the family and provider.
