APD Sends Report to Legislature

TALLAHASSEE —The Agency for Persons with Disabilities (APD), in
consultation with the Agency for Health Care Administration and other
stakeholders, has met its legislative requirement by submitting a
cost-containment report to the president of the Florida Senate,
speaker of the House, and governor on September 1.

The report analyzes more than two dozen options for controlling
expenditures within the Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS)
Developmental Disabilities waiver. The Legislature approved $810
million for the HCBS waiver for the 2011-12 state fiscal year that
began on July 1. APD customers received $930 million worth of services
during the 2010-11 fiscal year.
