Planning for Services Category

The Planning for Services category is for people who do not currently want or need supports but may in the future.

It is helpful to know about these situations even though the person/family is not seeking services now. The Planning for Services category is for persons who are:

  • Not currently seeking services but will be seeking if something happens to the caregiver (e.g. caregiver becomes ill or passes away) or other family circumstances change.
  • Currently receive funding or services through entities other than DD, and whose eligibility will be terminating primarily due to the age of the individual. This person is not in crisis and does not have a current need or desire for DD services. This might include, but is not limited to, persons who are funded through:
  • Early, Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) program
  • Medically Fragile/Technology Dependent Children's Waiver
  • Individual Care Grant supports through the mental health system
  • Illinois State Board of Education or public school system.
