COVID-19 Guidance Update for CLASS and DBMD Case Managers

Last updated on 1/21/2022

Fee-for-service Medicaid 1915(c) waiver case managers in the Deaf Blind with Multiple Disabilities (DBMD) and the Community Living Assistance & Support Services (CLASS) programs may use phone, telehealth, or telemedicine to conduct case management visits.

This temporary policy change extends through April 30, 2022, unless the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) ends sooner. The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) will send an update if there are any changes.
