ADM #2012-01 Habilitation Plan Requirements

Effective April 1, 2012, this Administrative Memorandum (ADM) issued by the Office for People With Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) describes the Habilitation Plan and the program standards and payment standards of the Habilitation Plan. This ADM also serves to bring Habilitation Plan review processes in line with ISP review processes changed in ADM #2010-04 “Program Standards: Individualized Service Plan (ISP) Format and Timeframes for Review and ADMINISTRATIVE MEMORANDUM #2012-01 Habilitation Plan Requirements Effective April 1, 2012 2 Distribution.” The requirements in this ADM apply to habilitation plans written or reviewed on or after April 1, 2012, and to the services delivered in accordance with those habilitation plans, whether the services are delivered to individuals who are enrolled in the Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver or to non-waiver enrolled individuals. Requirements set forth in this Administrative Memorandum supersede OPWDD ADM #2003-03 and provisions of the “Key to Individualized Services” (OPWDD, 1997) related to Habilitation Plans.
