4300, Initial IDT and SPT Meeting

Revision 22-1; Effective Nov. 28, 2022

The habilitation coordinator must attend the individual’s initial IDT meeting. The PE evaluator, or LIDDA representative, if the person who completed the PE is not in attendance, shares the results of the Community Living Options (CLO) presented during the PE (i.e., completed Form 1054, Community Living Options). If barriers are identified in Sections 6, 7 or 8 of Form 1054, then the habilitation coordinator and IDT members should determine if provision of any specialized service could help eliminate barriers. If so, the specialized service is considered recommended and must be identified as such on the PCSP form.

At the initial IDT and SPT meeting for an individual, the following LIDDA staff are in attendance:

The assigned habilitation coordinator can be designated as the LIDDA required member of the initial IDT if the habilitation coordinator completed the PE.

*Attendance at the initial IDT and SPT meeting as a required IDT member is an activity that is included in the PE reimbursement rate.

**A habilitation coordinator's attendance at the initial IDT and SPT meeting is reimbursed through the habilitation coordination reimbursement rate if the habilitation coordinator and individual are face-to-face.
