      • PIP completed if not achieve 85% of case compliance or 95% on accuracy in reporting for any three month period.

FSRP Services
  • Beginning with all referrals in August 2011, the five (5) business day contact requirement is back in effect.
    • The Contractor had ten (10) business days to make initial contact in the month of July 2011 on all referrals to FSRP Services (even if referral was made on July 31st).
safety plan fsrp services
Safety Plan/FSRP Services
  • Changes to both programs under new contract:
    • Defined face to face contact to mean in person or by videoconferencing. Video conferencing will be on a limited basis in appropriate circumstances with prior Agency (DHS) approval.
    • “Email” terminology was replaced with “electronic communication”.
    • Attendance to Dream Team Meetings (where available).
safety plan fsrp services13
Safety Plan/FSRP Services
  • Changes to both services under new contract:
    • No longer require Satisfaction Surveys.
    • Any changes to the frequency of contact or who must be seen is to be documented in subsequent Agency (DHS) electronic communication and placed in the case file.
    • Service Codes (A5XX and A9XX).
safety plan fsrp services14
Safety Plan/FSRP Services
  • Case Progress Reports (confidential information)
    • Option 1 – Contractor writes separate reports; or
    • Option 2 – One report, redact confidential information.
  • “No reject, no eject” – Contractors shall accept all cases referred to SP and FSRP by the Agency (DHS) within the contract area.
safety plan fsrp services15
Safety Plan/FSRP Services
  • Out of state
    • If a child is placed or resides outside of Iowa, the Contractor is not required to make contact with this child.
    • If a child is temporarily out of the state (vacation or other reasons), the Contractor is required to make contact.
      • If not able to make this contact, the missed contact would fall within the allowed 15%.
safety plan fsrp services16
Safety Plan/FSRP Services
  • If the address of the NCP is unknown at the time of FSRP referral, DHS should not require the Contractor to make contact with the NCP at any frequency until valid contact information is obtained. DHS and the Contractor should both be making attempts to locate the NCP based upon interactions and contact with the family during service delivery.
    • DHS staff may request that the Contractor make attempts to locate the NCP, but contact is not required until located.
safety plan fsrp services and cwes
Safety Plan/FSRP Services and CWES
  • A child/family can receive both FSRP Services and CWES Services--receiving FSRP services does not alone preclude a child from being eligible for CWES.
  • It’s possible a child receiving FSRP Services would need to be referred for a shelter placement that is part of the CWES array, thus accessing both services. CWES activities can be provided.
      • Duplicating efforts must be avoided, but the two Contractors should work closely together to align services to meet the needs of children in all levels of out of home care.
