HHSC Publishes In-Home Day Habilitation Information for Program Providers for COVID-19 (IL 2021-45)

September 29, 2021

Texas HHSC is temporarily waiving certain requirements in Section 3710, 4381.3, 4381.7(6) and 4381.7(7) of the Home and Community-based Services Billing Guidelines and the Texas Home Living Billing Guidelines. This is due to COVID-19 and to provide access to needed day habilitation services.

HHSC has published a revision to this guidance in IL 2021-45 In-Home Day Habilitation Information for Program Providers for COVID-19 (PDF). This replaces IL 2021-39. It extends the temporary guidance through Oct. 31, 2021 unless the public health emergency ends sooner. HHSC will update if there are any changes.
