RULE §44.204Reassessments

A provider must reassess an individual annually and any time there is a change in the individual's status, as follows:

  (1) Annual reassessments. A provider must annually reassess an individual in accordance with §44.203 of this subchapter (relating to Assessment and Eligibility Determination). The provider must complete each on-site annual reassessment no later than one year after the service initiation date and no later than one year after each reassessment.

  (2) Reassessment upon change in individual status. When a provider learns that an individual's status may have changed in a way that may affect the individual's eligibility for or receipt of services, the provider must reassess the individual. In doing so, the provider may consider only those factors in §44.203 of this subchapter that have changed since the previous assessment. A change in individual status that requires reassessment may include a change in:

    (A) income, deductions, or exclusions; or

    (B) the individual's need for attendant care services, the service plan, or the hours of service.

  (3) Notice of eligibility. A provider must send a notice of eligibility and, if applicable, notice of the right to a fair hearing to an individual within five working days after a reassessment using the DADS Notification of Community Services form.
