ODP Bulletin

ODP Announcement 22-089 reports that the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has developed two brief surveys for Community Participation Support providers to collect information on current system capacity. The first survey is meant to collect current data from Community Participation Services (CPS) providers on CPS capacity across the ODP service system. The second survey is meant to collect current data on individuals who are authorized to receive CPS across the ODP service system but are not receiving the service.

ODP will send each provider a list of MCIs with less than 5% CPS utilization, if there are any associated with their MPI, to assist with information gathering.

Important note to all CPS Providers: Providers must contact individuals and families, or the assigned SC, when the reason for less than 5% utilization is unknown.

The first survey regarding system capacity will be available Monday, August 8, 2022, and will close Monday, August 22, 2022.

The second survey to collect individual-specific information will be available Monday, August 15, 2022, and will close Thursday, September 15, 2022.

ODP will release these surveys no more than once per quarter.

Attachment 1 — ODP CPS Survey 1: Service System Capacity Questions
Attachment 2 — ODP CPS Survey 2: Authorized Services Questions

Any questions regarding the surveys should be directed to the appropriate regional CPS lead.

  • Bulletin 00-20-02, Individual Support Plans for Individuals Receiving Targeted Support Management, Base-Funded Services, Consolidated, Community Living or P/FDS Waiver Services, or Who Reside in an ICF/ID

The purpose of this bulletin is to provide guidance on documentation needed to substantiate a claim as well as provide guidance on the service documentation processes. This information is applicable to providers and Supports Coordination Organizations (SCO) that render services through the Consolidated, Community Living, P/FDS, and Adult Autism Waivers as well as Targeted Support Management (TSM) and base-funded services.

Documentation to provide a record of services delivered to an individual must be prepared and kept by the provider, SCO, or common-law employer for the purposes of substantiating a claim and documenting service delivery. The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has developed Technical Guidance for Claim and Service Documentation for providers of services in the Adult Autism Waiver and providers of services for all other waivers and base-funded services, which provide specific information for providers and SCOs on the documentation that must be kept for each service in order to support a claim and to document service delivery. These apply to services rendered by providers and SCOs that have enrolled directly with ODP, organized health care delivery systems, and services delivered through both self-directed services models, Agency with Choice, and Vendor Fiscal/Employer Agent.

Providers are encouraged to review and consider using the Medical Assistance Provider Self Review Protocol to proactively identify and address any claim documentation-related problems. The protocol can be found here.

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) has released Bulletin 00-21-01: Guidance for Human Rights Teams and Human Rights Committees, effective today, Friday, February 5, 2021. The purpose of this bulletin is to provide guidance related to the formation and responsibilities of Human Rights Teams (HRTs) and Human Rights Committees (HRCs) and clarify the roles of all members of HRTs and HRCs in the management, approval, and oversight of restrictive procedures.

The guidance outlined in this bulletin aligns with ODP’s mission, vision, and values and reflects regulatory and contractual expectations for administrative entities (AEs) and providers. The requirements and recommendations discussed in this bulletin are intended to support a consistent approach to ensure an individual’s health, safety, welfare, and rights.

All of the information in this bulletin that addresses the use of an HRT applies to providers who render services through all of the waivers, including the Adult Autism Waiver (AAW). However, the functions of the HRC discussed in this bulletin for participants enrolled in the AAW are fulfilled by the Bureau of Supports for Autism and Special Populations (BSASP) instead of by an AE.
