During the Division's monitoring of a statistically valid sample of participants in each of the three waivers, the Division has found an overall 24% compliance rate for service plans signed to signify approval by the waiver participant, parent/guardian (if applicable), Individual Service and Support Advocacy (ISSA) and the provider Qualified Intellectual Disabilities Professional (QIDP) for FY11 and 50% for FY12 through December 31, 2011. The Division has been working with providers through informal on-site technical assistance and corrective action plans as non-compliance issues have been identified. Through these activities, the Division determined the need to issue this Information Bulletin describing requirements for review of service plans and documentation of written approval of service plans. Further, the Division believes that providing ISSAs with this tool will assist in addressing compliance with all performance measures in Appendix D of the waiver. (Appendix D addresses service planning issues.)
