Synopsis of the topic:

West Virginia will present on their Level I screening tool developed to help eliminate false positives and to more accurately identify those individuals with a serious mental illness and/or an intellectual disability/ developmental delay. For West Virginia, a systems approach meant that all entities involved in the process must be trained extensively and frequently Representatives from West Virginia will discuss WV’s current definition of specialized services as well as anticipated changes. The presenter will also discuss the importance of automation to allow reviews to shorten the timeframes for Level I and Level II reviews.
