ADM #2005-02 HCBS Respite/Non Waiver Enrolled Respite Service Documentation Requirements

This is to specify Respite service documentation requirements that support a provider’s claim for reimbursement. These service documentation requirements apply to Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waiver Respite and “non-Waiver enrolled” (NWE) Respite Services provided in all settings. NWE Respite, also known as “mirrored” HCBS Respite, is provided to consumers not enrolled in the HCBS waiver. 

In addition to the claim documentation requirements specified in this Administrative Memorandum (ADM), Respite providers must continue to comply with quality service standards set forth in The Key to Individualized Services, The Home and Community Based Services Waiver (OMRDD, 1997).
