- diagnosis of an intellectual and / or developmental disability (IDD) or other related condition

Eligibility to receive services is determined by Metrocare’s Eligibility Determination Unit.
As part of the Metrocare’ s efforts to identify existing and future needs of individuals receiving services from the Local IDD Authority, the survey below has been developed to gather input. The survey is intended for all stakeholders, such as people who have an IDD, family and friends of people who have an IDD, advocacy organizations, private provider organizations, MCOs, and other that provide services for individuals with IDD.
