The Georgia Department of Community Health, HCBS Waiver Unit has developed a new incident reporting system to be used by all providers serving members in the Independent Care Waiver Program and Elderly and Disabled Waiver Program. The department will implement the new system regionally beginning in April 2020. The new system will be expanded to new counties every few months until full statewide implementation is achieved.

Additional resources can be found below to assist in training agency staff. Refer to waiver program policy manuals to review new policy guidelines for reporting and investigating incidents. Policy manuals can be accessed here .
