The Texas Health and Human Services Commission is temporarily waiving requirements in Sections 4320 and 3710 of the HCS Billing Guidelines and the TxHmL Billing Guidelines. This is in response to COVID-19 and to provide access to needed day habilitation services.

HHS published a revision to this in IL20-19 In-Home Day Habilitation Information for Program Providers (PDF). This information letter was previously issued on April 30. It extends the temporary guidance through July 31, 2020, due to COVID-19.

The revised IL applies to the following program providers:

  • Home and Community-based Services
  • Texas Home Living
  • Local Intellectual and Developmental Disability Authorities
  • Financial Management Services Agencies
