The Notice of Participant Rights and Responsibilities form is used by the Youth Empowerment Services (YES) Waiver program to document that a provider has given a YES Waiver participant and their legally authorized representative (LAR) oral and written notification of the participant’s rights and responsibilities.
Procedure to Prepare
The Wraparound Provider Organization (WPO) informs the participant and their LAR of the participant’s rights and responsibilities at the time of enrolment. The Wraparound facilitator must include the name and contact information of the local client rights or rights protection officer in the appropriate section of the form. The Wraparound facilitator must provide the participant and their LAR with a copy of the signed and dated form and must maintain the original copy in the participant’s record.
Additionally, the Wraparound facilitator gives the participant:
- HHSC’s Health and Human Services Notice of Privacy Practices;
- the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) Handbook of Consumer Rights, Mental Health Services; and
- the Youth Empowerment Services (YES) Waiver Family Participation Guide.
At least annually, the Wraparound facilitator reviews the form with the participant and their LAR to ensure they understand the form’s contents. A new signature is required upon review.
The Wraparound facilitator retains the completed form according to the retention requirements found in the YES Waiver Policy Manual. A copy of the form is provided to the participant and legally authorized representative.
During the initial intake/assessment, the Wraparound facilitator reviews all sections on the form with the participant and their LAR.
