The Texas Health and Human Services Commission is temporarily waiving requirements in Sections 4320 and 3710 of the Home and Community-based Services Billing Guidelines and the Texas Home Living Billing Guidelines. This is in response to COVID-19 and to provide access to needed day habilitation services.

HHS published a revision to this in IL 2020-19 In-Home Day Habilitation Information for Program Providers (PDF). This information letter was previously issued on July 30, 2020. It extends the temporary guidance through Nov. 30, 2020.
