The mission of CRCMS is to assist individuals with severe physical and sensory disabilities to build a quality of life of their choosing through self-direction, support, and community resources.
The DARS Community Rehabilitation Case Management Services (CRCMS) Program assists people with severe physical and sensory disabilities to build a quality of life of their choosing through self-direction, support, and community resources. The CRCMS Program seeks to eliminate, reduce, or prevent economic and personal dependency. CRCMS Rehabilitation Specialists match an individual's rehabilitative needs with appropriate services and supports in the community.
CRCMS Rehabilitation Specialists provide specialized services to eligible individuals who need long-term case management services; including residents of skilled nursing facilities through a Nursing Home Outreach Services through an agreement with the Department of Behavioral Health and Development Services (DBHDS). CRCMS also provides Support Coordination Services through the Virginia Developmental Disabilities Medicaid Waiver program administered by the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS).
Individuals with physical and sensory disabilities are often challenged by a complicated service delivery system as they seek assistance in meeting their needs. CRCMS Rehabilitation Specialists work collaboratively to plan services and build community supports to enhance an individual's quality of life, independence, and employment.
Individuals are eligible to apply for services through the DRS Community Rehabilitation Program (CRCMS) if they have a physical or sensory disability, require a special combination of life long or extended duration services, and their disability results in substantial limitations in three or more of the following life areas:
All individuals considered for services through CRCMS must meet disability and financial criteria, whether it is for long-term rehabilitation case management services; nursing home outreach services; or Medicaid Waiver services.
