This document describes the service documentation requirements for residential habilitation delivered on and after July 1, 2014 to residents of Supervised Individualized Residential Alternatives (IRAs) and Supervised Community Residences (CRs). These criteria apply to residential habilitation services delivered to residents of supervised IRAs and supervised CRs, whether or not the individuals are enrolled in the HCBS waiver. The service documentation requirements set forth below supersede fiscal audit service documentation requirements addressed in The Key to Individualized Services, OPWDD’s HCBS Waiver Policy Manual. Quality service standards in The Key remain the same.
This Administrative Memorandum (ADM) supersedes the information in Administrative Memorandum #2002-01 pertaining to Supervised IRA Residential Habilitation (including Supervised CRs) only. Administrative Memorandum #2002-01 continues to remain in effect for Supportive IRA and Supportive CR Residential Habilitation.
