The Texas Health and Human Services Commission is advising program providers to renew an individual’s level of care that expired in March, April, or May if they did not get a physician’s signature on the ID/RC assessment form before the level of care expired.
This is explained in IL 20-29 (PDF).
Some ICF/IID program providers are having difficulty obtaining a physician signature on intellectual disability/related condition assessment forms due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
For questions about this information letter as it relates to:
- Renewing a level of care or submitting an ID/RC assessment form call the IDD Program Enrollment Support message line at 512-438-2484.
- A level of need, call the IDD Utilization Review message line at 512-438-5055.
