14700, Additional Monitoring Related to Risk Factors

Revision 22-1; Effective February 4, 2022

Each quarter, RACs compile a quarterly trending report for all HCS and TxHmL waiver contracts. This risk factor report includes:

  • number of confirmed abuse/neglect/exploitation allegations entered into the abuse/neglect database that meet or exceed 5% of all confirmed findings out of the total number of allegations for contract;
  • number of complaints entered into the complaint database; and
  • number of deaths of individuals entered into the death database.

The RACs assess the circumstances related to the identified contracts reflected in this report for two quarters in the last calendar year. If they identify patterns or trends that indicate a possible increased risk to the health, safety or welfare of the individuals in this contract, follow-up actions are taken as appropriate.
