Settlement Agreement Documents
Settlement Agreement: The class action settlement agreement is a long document that has all the details about the settlement. All of the changes that the Idaho Department and Health and Welfare has agreed to for the Idaho adult DD program are explained here.
New model development plan: This document explains the work that the outside expert will do to help the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare develop a new model for setting personal supports budgets. The outside expert is John Agosta, who works for the Human Services Research Institute.
Health and Safety standards: The health and safety standards define what you will need to show to get a higher budget. The standards also spell out what documents you need to have to get a higher budget.
SIB-R form: This is the form that you will have to sign to get copies of your SIB-R scoring booklets.
New budget notice form: This is the format of the new budget notice that the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare will start sending out.
Class action settlement notice: This notice is mailed to everyone in the Idaho adult DD program and many others. This notice explains how you can let the Court know if you have concerns about the settlement.
Preliminary settlement approval: This is the first step toward final approval for the settlement agreement. Now that the court has granted preliminary approval, a notice will be sent to everyone in the adult DD program. The court will hold a hearing on January 12, 2017, to decide whether to finally approve the settlement.
Partial declaratory judgment: This court order protects your right to know how the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare decided your budget. This order requires the Department to give you copies of your budget calculations and to show you how they came up with the formulas they use.
Summary judgment decision: This is the court decision that said that the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare would have to make big changes to the Idaho adult DD program.
