1915 i needs based criteria

1915(i) Needs-Based Criteria

  • Determined by an individualized evaluation of need (e.g., individuals with the same condition may differ in Activities of Daily Living ADLS)

  • May be functional criteria such as ADLs or Instrumental ADLs (IADLs)

  • ADLs: Eating, bathing dressing, hygiene, mobility, toileting, transferring

  • IADLs: Preparing meals, shopping, transportation, money management, managing meds

Additional material added by

R. Cooper


Needs based criteria

Needs-Based Criteria

  • May include State-defined risk factors

    • Behavioral

    • Memory, judgment, or cognitive concerns

    • Additional medical risks

  • Needs-based criteria are not:

    • descriptive characteristics of the person, or diagnosis

    • population characteristics

    • institutional levels of care


Needs based criteria who the benefit may cover

Needs-Based Criteria — Who the benefit may cover

  • The lower threshold of needs-based eligibility criteria must be “less stringent” than institutional and HCBS waiver LOC.

  • But there is no implied upper threshold of need. Therefore the universe of individuals served:

    • Must include some individuals with less need than institutional Level of Care (LOC)

    • and May include individuals at institutional LOC, (but not in an institution)


Needs based criteria universe

Institutional LOC

HCBS Criteria

Needs-Based Criteria — Universe

Example

  • Eligibility criteria for HCBS benefit may be narrow or broad

  • HCBS eligibility criteria may overlap all, part, or none, of the institutional LOC:
