4200, Assignment of Habilitation Coordinator

Revision 22-1; Effective Nov. 28, 2022

A local intellectual and developmental disability authority (LIDDA) must assign a habilitation coordinator  to an eligible person within two business days after the PE is entered in the Long-Term Care (LTC) online portal. The habilitation coordinator must attend the person’s initial IDT meeting along with the LIDDA representative who is a required member of the IDT. See Section 2500, PASRR Initial IDT and SPT Meeting, and Section 4300, Initial IDT and SPT Meeting. If the assigned habilitation coordinator functions in another LIDDA capacity, the habilitation coordinator will indicate all represented functions on the sign-in sheet.

The habilitation coordinator must review the individual’s PE, Form 1054, Community Living Options, completed by the PE evaluator, and any other available supporting documentation (e.g., diagnostic information in the Client Assignment and Registration system (CARE), previous LIDDA services, previous service plans) before the initial IDT meeting.
