RD144 - Fiscal Year 2021 Training Center Closure Plan 3rd Quarter Update – April 1, 2021

Executive Summary:

This report covers the period of January 1, 2021 – March 31, 2021. Effective April 2, 2020, all four Virginia Training Centers slated to close have ceased residential operations.

The Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services (DBHDS), with the Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS), implemented the amended Medicaid Intellectual and Developmental Disability (I/DD) Waivers in September 2016. As planned, general funds realized from training center closures continue to be reinvested to expand the planned community waiver operations. Community capacity has sufficiently developed across the commonwealth to meet the needs of individuals leaving the training centers. As of February 12, 2021, the census at Southeastern Virginia Training Center (SEVTC), the only remaining training center funded by Virginia’s Medicaid Plan service as an Intermediate Care Facility for Individuals with Intellectual Disability (ICF/IID), is 75.
