To ensure people do not experience a gap in services due to the temporary suspension of face to face service coordination visits for COVID-19, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission will extend Intellectual Disability/Related Condition assessments and individual plans of care expiring at the end of May 2020. This is for people enrolled in the Home and Community- based Services Program or the Texas Home Living Program.

HHS published IL2020-11 (PDF), Extensions of Eligibility and Individual Plan of Care Revisions for Individuals in HCS and TxHmL Due to COVID-19. It was previously issued on March 26, 2020 and extends the temporary guidance through May 31, 2020.
