Are there limitations to your receipt of vehicle modification services?

Vehicle modification services are only available on the CIIBS or IFS waiver. The following limitations apply:
(1) Clinical and support needs for vehicle modification services are limited to those identified in your DDA assessment and documented in the person-centered service plan.
(2) Vehicle modifications are excluded if they are of general utility without direct medical or remedial benefit to you.
(3) If you are eligible for or enrolled with division of vocational rehabilitation (DVR) you must pursue this benefit through DVR first.
(4) Vehicle modifications must be the most cost effective modification based upon a comparison of contractor bids as determined by DDA.
(5) Modifications will only be approved for a vehicle that serves as your primary means of transportation and is owned by you, your family, or both.
(6) DDA requires your treating professional's written recommendation regarding your need for the service. This recommendation must take into account that the treating professional has recently examined you, reviewed your medical records, and conducted a functional evaluation.
(7) The department may require a second opinion from a department selected provider that meets the same criteria as subsection (6) of this section.
(8) The dollar amount for your annual allocation in your IFS waiver limits the amount of vehicle modification service you are authorized to receive.
