CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - The state has been reviewing expenses of a program that provides services to intellectually and developmentally disabled children and adults.

State law requires a review of costs every two to four years for the Medicaid Home- and Community-Based Waivers program. The program pays for services such as respite care for families and aides that help developmentally disabled people shop or work on a particular skill.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1LsfiD0 ) that Health Department officials will present the results of their work to lawmakers on the Joint Labor, Health and Social Services Interim Committee next week.

The Legislature, which meets over the winter, will use the information to decide how much money to spend on the program.
