HCBS Settings Countdown: 364 days
* We have updated the Policy and Evidence Tool for CDS to include answering question #11 - modifications (also called restrictions). It was previously only under the residential section. If you are a day program only that has submitted policies, or a day site that has already uploaded your evidence to the portal, please email the additional information on Question #11 to DHS.HCBS@illinois.gov. In the subject line, please put "Additional Policy or Site Evident for #11. In the body of the email, please indicate the organization and the site address. Please note, we have updated the Policy and Evidence Tool for those who have not completed this activity.
* On our Settings webpage you can find an updated FAQ based on questions received during the Settings Update webinar two weeks ago. We have started an additional document and will eventually incorporate all FAQs together. Check out IDHS: Division of Developmental Disabilities HCBS Settings Rule Compliance under resources for the initial FAQ and the new webinar FAQs.
* Reminder, every Tuesday at 10 am, you can bring your questions to office hours. There is no registration, just a link to join.
