How Is My Budget Determined?

For the Community Alternative Care, Community Access for Disabled Inclusion, Brain Injury, Elder Waiver or Alternative Care waiver, the budget  amount is based annually on a formula using the most recent Long-Term Care Consultation/Reassessment or MnCHOICES assessment.

For the Developmental Disability waiver, the maximum annual resource amount is based annually on a formula using the most recent Developmental Disability full team screening or the MnCHOICES assessment.

If your needs remain basically the same year to year, your amount could remain about the same each year. A decrease in the budget is often reflection of growth and progress.
