CID is looking for feedback regarding Veyo
The Consortium for Idahoans with Disabilities is collecting information regarding issues that people with disabilities (and/or parents of children with disabilities) may be experiencing with non-emergency medical transportation being provided by the new managed care organization Veyo.
CID is sharing these concerns with the Department of Health and Welfare, legislators, and Veyo in an effort to determine what problems may exist and how to provide immediate solutions.
The Idaho Council on Developmental Disabilities (ICDD) has announced their Five-Year Strategic Plan (2017-2021). They are seeking your public comment.
The Plan outlines the goals, objectives and expected outcomes they are proposing for their future work and what they hope to make happen in the next five years.
On July 7th Griselda Camacho will conduct a focus group in Spanish to review the DD Council 5 year strategic plan
