Any individual who has a clinical diagnosis of intellectual disability or other developmental disability or a related condition is eligible for admission to services regardless of age, ethnic origin, gender, marital or religious status.
Individuals can only be served if funding for those services is available. Individuals who are not authorized for funding through the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services can be served if an individual contract is negotiated with another funding source (e.g. Department of Education, Vocational Rehabilitation, insurance, or school districts) or through private pay.
Meeting the eligibility requirements does not guarantee the availability of appropriate services/supports or commit the Agency to provide services which are not yet developed. Neither does meeting the eligibility requirements define priorities as to who shall receive services first in the event of limited resources.
