Legally Responsible Individuals (LRIs)


The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has approved the delay of the implementation of the new legally responsible individuals (LRI) requirements until March 1, 2024 to allow families to learn more, adjust to this change, and have additional time to find an alternate caregiver and support services. View the Medicaid Bulletin for more information on the delayed implementation.

DMAS is committed to helping families adjust to this next chapter. Thank you for your continued efforts to serve the needs of our Medicaid members.
