dads transition activities
DADS Transition Activities

DADS preparation priorities prior to transfer of HCS case management:

  • Develop Program Handbook, forms & templates – includes PDP & Implementation Plan (IP); draft PDP and IP documents were distributed for comment at the P/P Coalition meeting in December; a number of documents, including MRA-SC Responsibilities section of the handbook, an HCS Contact information form for consumers, and a Notification of SC Disagreement form were distributed for comment at the January P/P meeting.
  • Make changes to CARE information system
  • Communicate changes to individuals receiving HCS services & their families – done through letter with consumer distribution date no later than December 7, 2009
  • Develop training for MRAs and HCS Providers -- scheduled
  • Support flexibility of HCS Provider transitional case management requirements – letter dated December 28 authorizing contracted Case Management
short review of draft documents
Short Review of Draft Documents
  • Person Directed Planning Template
  • Implementation Plan Template
  • MRA Service Coordination responsibilities draft
pdp template mra comments
PDP Template: MRA Comments
  • The document requires a section that gives you a broad overview of the person, including likes and dislikes, strengths and successes.
  • The action plan section should also include DISCOVERY, with a summary of the process, what was learned through discovery, identification of appropriate outcomes, and barriers to outcomes.
  • Additional section for justification of Service Coordination.
  • Additional section for justification of contraindications (no day hab because of retirement/home schooling because of medical issues, etc.) and deliberations (agreements/disagreements).
ip template mra comments
IP Template: MRA Comments

Despite a desire to have a template that would promote a consistent format, the draft document is wide open. Our opinion is that it would benefit providers and the MRA equally to have a format that is not as wide open, remains individualized, and meets the needs outlined in the instructions to the draft template.

  • HOTRMHMR Action Plan template – review and comment.
mra sc responsibilities making sense of what is in the rule
MRA SC Responsibilities:Making sense of what is in the rule.

EXAMPLES:

2. II. B. Recommends that the SC be familiar with billing guidelines to facilitate “justifying supports and services”

Comment: This is a key area of confusion for delineating SC and Provider functions. The draft rule infers that the SC justify the type of service to be provided based on a desired outcome; the provider then justifies the amount of the service provided. Clarification is needed.

mra sc responsibilities making sense of what is in the rule continued
MRA SC Responsibilities:Making sense of what is in the rule. (continued)

EXAMPLES:

3. IV. A. bullet 4 States that the SC must monitor to determine whether an individual’s health and safety is ensured in the environments in which the individual frequents.

Comment: The SC should not be accountable for monitoring an individual in environments that are not related to HCS of non-HCS services and supports.

mra sc responsibilities making sense of what is in the rule continued1
MRA SC Responsibilities:Making sense of what is in the rule. (continued)

EXAMPLES:

5. IV. D. 4 States that the SC is not responsible for providing the provider with a written review of their monitoring activities and documentation.

Comment: This implies that the MRA and the Provider are monitoring the same services separately, without input from each other. This is costly and inefficient duplication.

mra sc responsibilities making sense of what is in the rule continued2
MRA SC Responsibilities:Making sense of what is in the rule. (continued)

EXAMPLES:

11. IX. B. C. States that the SC must ensure the HCS provider enters the suspension data in CARE screen C18.

Comment: This requirement, as worded here and in the draft rule, appears contradictory to the SC role to monitor the individual, not the provider.
