  • The current Level of Care (LOC) process measures compliance for LOC redeterminations being completed timely when they are conducted within 365 calendar days of the last LOC. TCM agencies requested that the Division review the current process forLOC redeterminations to meet annual requirements.

    In response to the request, annual redetermination has been redefined in order to make this easier for Support Coordinators (SCs) to meet the annual LOC redetermination requirement. Enhancements to the process will link the annual LOC implementation date to the annual Individual Support Plan (ISP) implementation date.

    Effective April 1, 2018 LOCs will be completed within 90 days prior to the ISP implementation date, thus making the LOC implementation date effective with the ISP implementation date.

    A webinar providing additional details will be hosted by the Division on April 19, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. To register for one of these sessions (both sessions will provide the same information), please visit:

      Just when you thought you had conquered Division Directive 4.300, you find out that one of the individuals you support has experienced a reactive strategy when they reached to touch the stove when they were in the kitchen and staff put them in a one-man hold and escorted them out of the kitchen.

      So what is it that you need to do now? You remember there was some plan you needed to write.

      Learn the INs and OUTs of writing a SAFETY CRISIS PLAN for individuals you support.

      This training is intended for TCM entities and Providers (support coordinators, program managers, behavior analysts) but anyone who participates in the support of an individual served by the Division of Developmental Disabilities can benefit from the training.
