The initial approval period of a Family Violence Exclusion may be for up to 6 months, depending on individual case circumstances. Subsequent review periods are determined at the Multi-disciplinary Staffing (MDS) when determining if the exclusion will continue, and may be for up to 6 months. There is no limit on the number of times the Family Violence Exclusion may be continued. A person may refuse to be considered for the Family Violence Exclusion and may end the exclusion at anytime without penalty.
When a Family Violence Exclusion will not be continued, notify the client of the decision.
