Appendix XI, Retired Information Letters

Body

Revision 13-5; Effective November 19, 2013

 

The Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) deployed the revised Community Living Assistance and Support Services (CLASS) Provider Manual in June 2011. This manual contains contract guidelines that were formerly found in Information Letters (ILs).

Content in this manual and the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) supersedes any previous ILs or similar guidance published by DADS. The ILs retired as a result are listed below. DADS recommends that providers remove the ILs from their records to ensure they reference the most current information. Any letters or program guidance issued prior to Internet accessibility is null and void, including policy previously sent by U.S. mail.
