All HCS, TxHmL, CLASS, DBMD and ICF/IDD providers are asked to ensure their employees know about the voluntary IDD Assessment pilot that began May 1 and runs through Aug. 15. (Details about the assessment can be found in Information Letter No. 17-08 (PDF).
Whether or not someone who gets IDD services participates in the assessment, it will not affect the current services and supports he or she receives.
The vendor doing the assessment – KEPRO – is calling people who receive IDD services or their LARS who live in the Tarrant County and Lakes Regional LIDDA areas (see the list of counties below). If you or your employees get questions about the legitimacy of these calls, you can refer people to this alert, to the provider letter or ask them to send an email to IDD.Assessment@dads.state.tx.us.
Counties included in this pilot are:
