ADM #2016-01 Supported Employment (SEMP)

Supported Employment (SEMP) services provide supports for individuals with developmental disabilities to obtain and maintain competitive employment. SEMP services have been redesigned to include new service delivery, documentation, and staff training requirements, as well as a new fee structure for provider reimbursement. The requirements specified herein apply to SEMP services delivered to individuals who are enrolled in the Medicaid Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver and to non-waiver enrolled individuals. Individuals receiving SEMP services must have expressed an interest in competitive employment or self-employment and have competitive employment or self-employment identified as a valued outcome in their Individualized Service Plans (ISPs). In addition to the claim documentation requirements identified in this ADM, SEMP providers must continue to comply with applicable OPWDD regulations and quality standards in Administrative Memorandum #2012-01.
