The purpose of the Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) Bulletin 00-22-01 is to communicate and clarify the requirements for Targeted Support Management (TSM) that were approved by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Changes to TSM discussed in this bulletin include:

  • Expansion of TSM services, effective August 20, 2017, to individuals with autism.
  • Expansion of TSM services, effective July 1, 2021, to children age 8 or younger with a developmental disability who are eligible for Medical Assistance (MA) and who have been determined to need an Intermediate Care Facility for Other Related Conditions (ICF/ORC) level of care.
  • Expansion of TSM services, effective July 1, 2021, to individuals age 0 through 21 with a medically complex condition that is a chronic health condition that affects three or more organ systems, and that the individual requires medically necessary skilled nursing intervention to execute medical regimens to use technology for respiration, nutrition, medication administration, or other bodily functions. Individuals must be eligible for MA and have been determined to need an ICF/ORC level of care.
  • Clarification regarding the use of the LifeCourse framework and tools.
  • Clarification of expected assessment activities and the development of the Individual Support Plan (ISP).
  • Addition of enhanced qualification requirements for TSM providers and Targeted Support Manager Supervisors.
  • Clarification that individuals who are enrolled in and receiving case management services under any Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) program administered via an 1115, 1915(b) and (c), or 1915(a), (b), or (c) waiver are not eligible to receive TSM.

The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) announced that a new supports coordinator (SC) orientation course is now available on MyODP. The title of the course is You are the Keystone for Individuals and Families. New supports coordinators and targeted supports managers (TSM) must complete the ODP required SC Orientation Curriculum, including this new course. The SC Orientation Curriculum must be completed within 30 days of hire and completed prior to a new SC or TSM working independently with an individual.

Though the entire SC curriculum is required for a new SC or TSM, this specific course provides valuable information, useful for a refresher at any time for any SC or TSM, about their role in the context of the human services system in which he or she works to support individuals and families.
