2021 Legislative & Annual Report: CDS Update

Our Consumer Directed Services (CDS) Division demonstrated superior commitment with uninterrupted service to over 700 consumers and attendants in 2021. It wasn't only pandemic conditions that strained our CDS services this year: our team has been putting in untold extra hours to prepare our CDS operations for federally mandated (but unfunded) rule changes. Kudos to Chief Operating Officer Denise Ellison, CDS Director Kit Cuny and team members Laura Harrell, Glenn Erickson, Rosie Williams, and Jeska Savage. Several CDS agencies across the state have closed their doors because of the extreme burdens this mandate puts on them. We are hopeful that 2022 will see the resolution of our preparations and we are committed to continued service to our CDS consumers and their attendants.
