This Information Bulletin is intended to update the Individual Service and Support Advocacy (ISSA) Additional Monitoring Report. The title of the form has changed from ISSA Additional Monitoring Report to Independent Service Coordination (ISC) Specialized Additional Monitoring Report (pdf) (IL462-4452). In addition, the form has been revised allowing more space for narrative information so that the ISC agencies are not limited in what they document while on a monitoring visit.
The ISC agencies conduct four standard visits each fiscal year to each individual receiving Waiver services. If there is a concern as to the health, safety and well-being of individuals receiving DDD Waiver services, the Department of Human Services/Division of Developmental Disabilities (DHS/DDD) may request the ISC to conduct special additional on-site monitoring visits. Additional monitoring visits may also be needed in cases involving a provider agency with systemic problems so severe that individuals are put at risk. This form is to be used for specialized additional monitoring visits only; it does not replace the standard ISSA Visiting Notes form. The Specialized Additional Monitoring Report may be used in conjunction with the Request to Exceed 25-Hour ISSA Services Cap form [IL462-4451 (N-12-15)].
This information bulletin, along with the Independent Service Coordination (ISC) Specialized Additional Monitoring Report form, will be effective immediately upon this release.
