Missouri Regional Centers


What is a Missouri Regional Center

Missouri Regional Centers operate eleven regional offices that provide service coordination and work with individuals, families and providers. The regional offices, are your points of entry into the system, and they provide assessment and case management services.

The Missouri Department of Mental Health's Division of Developmental Disabilities (Division of DD) administers four Medicaid Home and Community Based (HCBS) Waiver programs for individuals with cognitive impairment or other developmental disabilities. The four waivers are the: Comprehensive Waiver; Missouri Children with Developmental Disabilities Waiver (MOCDD or Sarah Jian Lopez Waiver); Community Support Waiver; and Autism Waiver. Requests to access waiver services may be made through an intake woker or service coordinator at the regional office. A determination of ineligibility for a waiver will not necessarily disqualify individuals from other regional office services for which they qualify and for which funding is available.

Due to limitations on the availability of funding, the Missouri Division of Developmental Disabilities is unable to immediately provide services to all individuals with disabilities. Persons will be served based on priority of need. Everyone who applies for services from the Division is entitled to an eligibility determiniation. All persons determined eligible will have a service coordinator (case manmager) assigned and an annual person centered plan will be developed.

  • Eligible individuals on the waiting lists with the greatest need are served first regardless of the order individuals began writing

The Division's Utilization Review (UR) process evaluates a person's need for service based on an individual's health, safety and quality of life. The following is considered to determine need:

  • Homelessness
  • Immediate need for life-sustaining services and there are no alternatives to Divison services
  • Danger to one's self or others
  • Legal/forensic status
  • Need to move from an institution
  • Health or age of primary caregiver
