Appendix V, Retired Information Letters

Revision 13-1; Effective September 13, 2013

The Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) deployed the Consumer Managed Personal Attendant Services (CMPAS) Provider Manual on Sept. 3, 2013. This manual contains all contract guidelines that were formerly found in Information Letters (ILs), as well as relevant Texas Administrative Code references.

This manual 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.
