The HCS Handbook & HCS Rules: 


Description:  This class is designed for anyone who is first starting out in the HCS Waiver Program as a  service coordinator for the “LIDDA”.  In addition, it is especially important training for new and current HCS & TxHmL providers, in particular, those persons coordinating services (program manager, case management, nurses & nursing staff) for the individuals receiving services in their programs.  This is a great session for those providing oversight and quality assurance for these programs as well (SC supervisors, Quality Assurance staff, Administrators) This webinar was developed to assist providers in understanding “who” is responsible for “what” as well as when to communicate and in what timeframe. (Areas of  focus are enrollments, transfers, suspensions, terminations, communication expectations, and timelines in order to remain in compliance of the Texas Administrative Codes)

The discussion will include:  


-What Does the LIDDA (Local IDD Authority) do?  

-Who is the SC (Service Coordinator) at the LIDDA and what is their role and responsibilities?    HCS/TxHmL

-What are the HCS/TxHmL providers’ roles and responsibilities?

-When does the HCS or TxHmL provider have to communicate with the SC? 

-What are the timelines for certain responsibilities and expected communications on both sides? HCS/TxHmL.  

-Who does “what” during enrollments, transfers, temporary suspensions, and permanent discharges?  HCS/TxHmL

-And much more
