COVID-19: HHSC Publishes In-Home Day Habilitation Information for Program Providers (Replaces IL 2022-32)

June 27, 2022

IL 2022-36 is posted on the HHS webpage for Home and Community-based Services, Texas Home Living, local intellectual and developmental disability authority, and financial management services agency program providers.

HHSC is temporarily waiving certain requirements in Section 3710, 4381.3, 4381.7(6) and 4381.7(7) of the HCS Billing Guidelines and TxHmL Guidelines. This is due to COVID-19 and provides access to needed day habilitation services.

HHSC has published a revision to this guidance in IL 2022-36 In-Home Day Habilitation Information for Program Providers for COVID-19 (PDF). This replaces IL 2022-32.

It extends the temporary guidance through Aug. 31, unless the COVID-19 public health emergency ends sooner. HHSC will provide guidance if there are any changes.
