MAXIMUS has been contracted to partner with the State of Maine’s Department of Health and Human Services, through the Office of Aging and Disability (OADS), as manager of its Statewide Assessing Services. This single Assessing Services Agency (ASA) Program will encompass a series of programs, including:
- Long Term Care (LTC), ABI, ORC, ICF/IDD, GPU
- Effective Immediately, All Face-to-Face Initial and Re-Assessments Will Now Be Conducted Telephonically
In response to recommendations from Maine Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Office of Governor Mills, effective immediately, all face-to-face initial and re-assessments will now be conducted telephonically. The MAXIMUS Maine Assessing Services Agency (ASA) will continue working closely with the Office of Aging and Disability Services for guidance on when face-to-face assessments may resume.
