The Texas Health and Human Services Commission will extend Intellectual Disability/Related Condition assessments and individual plans of care until HHSC notifies providers otherwise. This ensures people do not experience a gap in services due to the temporary suspension of face to face service coordination visits for COVID-19. It is for people enrolled in the Home and Community- based Services Program or the Texas Home Living Program.

HHS issued a revised IL20-11, Extensions of Eligibility and Individual Plan of Care Revisions for Individuals in HCS and TxHmL Due to COVID-19 (PDF).
