Change in Ramp Specifications for Community Long Term Care Waivers


Effective September 1, 2012, the South Carolina Department of Health and Human Services will change the specifications for building ramps in the Community Long Term Care waiver programs.  These modifications include new requirements for all ramp construction.  There will no longer be separate requirements for heavy duty and regular ramps.
