B3 Community Navigation Services
One of the challenges of receiving Intellectual/Developmental Disability services in North Carolina is the long list of individuals on each LME/MCO's Unmet Needs List.
Many individuals who could benefit from comprehensive home and community-based services remain on this waiting list for years before receiving full funding. Because of this deficit in supports, each LME/MCO has a b3 service array to assist individuals who await services under the Innovations Waiver.
Ryan's Place provides b3 Community Navigator services to I/DD children and adults with Medicaid a/b. Ryan's Place can serve as a b3 member's Clinical Home, developing a Person-Centered Plan, assisting with referrals for additional b3 services (including b3 respite, supported employment, and community transition) and other Medicaid and non-Medicaid resources and providers. We strive to ease the burden of navigating the system when full services and supports are not in place.
