To be eligible for admission to the center a person must have a diagnosis of profound, severe or moderate mental retardation or a related developmental disability. No one is denied admission because of inability to pay.

The developmental centers are inspected at least annually by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). external link graphic Inspectors may also conduct inspections in order to assess problems that arise between recertification visits.  CMS decides whether the developmental centers are in compliance with standards and thereby eligible to receive payment through Medicare and/or Medicaid.  Copies of CMS inspections are available from the DHHS Public Affairs Office at 919-733-9190.
