The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) will extend expiring Intellectual Disability/Related Condition (ID/RC) assessments and individual plans of care until HHSC notifies providers otherwise.
This will ensure that no one experiences a gap in services due to the temporary suspension of face to face service coordination visits for COVID-19.
It is for people enrolled in the Community Living Assistance and Support Services (CLASS) Program or the Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities (DBMD) Program.
HHS issued a revised IL 20-12 Extensions of Eligibility and Individual Plan of Care Revisions for Individuals in CLASS and DBMD Due to COVID-19 (PDF) with the updated guidelines.
Contact the Individuals with an Intellectual Disability (IDD) Program Enrollment Support message line at 512-438-2484 with questions about an ID/RC Assessment for CLASS.
Contact the IDD Waivers Utilization Review message line at 512-438-4896 with questions about ID/RC assessment.
