December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Children’s Services Handbook : 2 Medicaid Children’s Services Comprehensive Care Program (CCP) : 2.12 Community First Choice (CFC) Services : 2.12.3 CFC Attendant and Habilitation Services in Group Settings

CFC may be provided in a provider to client ratio other than one-to-one. Settings in which providers can provide CFC in a provider to client ratio other than one-to-one include homes with more than one client needing CFC, foster homes, and independent living arrangements. A CFC provider may provide CFC to more than one client over the span of the day as long as:
Only the time spent on authorized CFC tasks for each client is eligible for reimbursement. Total CFC billed for all clients cannot exceed an individual attendant’s total number of hours at the place of service.
When there is more than one client within the same household receiving CFC, the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) case manager will synchronize authorizations within the households for all eligible clients. The DSHS case manager will assess all eligible clients in the home and submit authorizations for all eligible clients in the household for the same authorization period. DSHS case managers will communicate with the provider the actions that are being taken using the existing Communication Tool.
