Approved ICF Rates:  09/12/19

Click on the link below to read HHSC’s notice to ICF/IID providers about the ICF/IID rates.  The notice informs providers that the rates have been approved but at a lower rate than proposed.  The notice further explains that errors in the calculation of the rates resulted in the variance between the rates proposed versus the rates finally approved. 
The rates will be retroactive to September 1, 2019.  Providers will receive a supplemental payment to cover the difference between services already billed/payments already received based on the FY 2019 rates and the newly adopted FY 2020 rates.

 

Enforcement of ICF/IID Administrative Penalties Begins Sept. 1

HHSC Long-term Care Regulatory has issued Provider Letter 19-20 Enforcement of State Licensure Violations. The provider letter informs ICF/IID license holders that, effective Sept. 1, 2019, HHSC will begin assessing administrative penalties for licensure violations based on the scope and severity of the violation. Read the details here.

 ICF/IID providers, please remember to contact us for assistance with Survey Prep, Plans of Corrections and especially Directive Inservice Trainings, so we can assist in helping providers avoid administrative penalties, whenever possible!

**Note- I have already put in an email asking about other dates for the scope and severity training webinars as the ones on Sept. 5th are full.
