Clarification on HCS and TxHmL IPCs Status in “Pending DADS Review”

Since May 2, 2022, Home and Community-based Services (HCS) and Texas Home Living (TxHmL) program providers, local intellectual and developmental disability authorities (LIDDAs) and financial management services agencies (FMSAs), billing on behalf of consumer-directed services (CDS), have been submitting forms and claims to the Texas Medicaid & Healthcare Partnership (TMHP).

In response to questions and concerns related to the processing of Individual Plan of Care (IPC) forms, HHSC is clarifying required actions by submitters and how they parallel to processes in the Intellectual Disability (ID) Client Assignment and Registration System (CARE).

Renewal and Revision IPCs

Renewal and Revision IPCs in either “Pending DADS Review” or “Pending Coach Review” require action from the submitter. This is typically the submission of supporting documentation. The IPC will not be reviewed until action is taken. This is the same process in place for “Exceeds” flags in ID-CARE.
