Effective for dates of service on or after October 1, 2020, Wheelchair Seating Evaluation Form guidelines will be updated to allow electronic signatures for the Children with Special Health Care Needs (CSHCN) Services Program.
The Wheelchair Seating Evaluation Form must be signed and dated by the qualified practitioner completing the assessment (physical therapist, occupational therapist, or physician). All signatures and dates must be current, unaltered, and original. Electronic signatures may be accepted when the national and state standards set by U.S Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Commerce, Texas Health and Human Services, and the Texas Uniform Electronic Transactions Act are met. Stamped signatures and dates will not be accepted.
