Important Information for FY 2019 IFSP Applicants Receiving Way2Go Cards
Per the IFSP Program Guidelines, all IFSP funding recipients are required to submit receipts showing that funds were spent on allowable service(s) or support(s).
As mentioned in the January 14th announcement, the IFSP Receipt Policy has CHANGED. All IFSP receipts will only be accepted using electronic submission in the application portal used to apply for IFSP Funds.
PLEASE NOTE: IFSP will no longer accept receipts sent in via fax, postal mail, or email.
New this year, applicants or their responsible party should upload all receipts directly to the IFSP Application Portal from their computer, tablet, or phone. For instruction on how to submit your receipts, please watch the following video: IFSP Receipt Portal YouTube Tutorial
Remember, you do not have to spend the funds on the "need" you applied for, but you must use the funds on an allowable service or support. You can find examples of allowable services and supports on the DBHDS IFSP website: http://dbhds.virginia.gov/developmental-services/ifsp. This information is also located on the IFSP Application Portal under “Help”.
Please see the resources below for additional instructions on how to upload receipts.
If you have questions about the new Receipt Policy, please contact My Life, My Community (operated by SeniorNavigator) by phone at (844) 603-9248.
