Transition Liaison - Maine DHHS
The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) provides supportive, preventative, protective, public health and intervention services that safeguard the public health and assist our customers in meeting their needs. The Office of Child and Family Services (OCFS) within DHHS is dedicated to helping create a future where all Maine children and families are safe, stable, happy, and healthy. The Office of Aging and Disability Services (OADS) within DHHS is responsible for ensuring the safety, support and well-being of adults throughout Maine.
The Department will be hiring four transition liaison positions, two housed at OCFS and two at OADS. The individuals in these positions will be responsible for learning and knowing their two systems and working together to cross-train and support children and adult case managers, school system personnel and families. These staff members would be supplementally trained and expert in transition related needs, timelines, and documentation. From an external support perspective, these liaisons would deliver the same types of support services.
Section 9817 of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARP) provides states with a temporary 10 percentage point increase to the federal medical assistance percentage (FMAP) for Medicaid HCBS expenditures.
