Hey everyone, we have heard from our colleagues at Disability Alliance BC that the Province of BC has issued a bulletin that explains the compensation process for former residents of Woodlands – check out more details at their website here or visit the Province’s site here.
It’s also the DABC Community Update that let us know about the Complex Medical Dental (CMD) pilot project funded by the provincial government (in addition to the existing benefits available). This project is led by the BC Dental Association and creates new opportunities for coverage for people on disability assistance, income assistance, and their families.
Applications to participate in the CMD pilot project must be completed by a person’s dentist – we have included the DABC Community Update and the Information and applications forms below.
