CLASS and DBMD program providers must start holding renewal SPT meetings before Jan. 1, 2021. This is to develop renewal individual plans of care and renewal documentation effective on Jan. 1, 2021, and to avoid future billing issues.

Complete renewal SPT meetings:

  • Before the end of the IPC effective period
  • By telehealth for ID/RC assessments and phone or telehealth for IPCs

IL 20-46, Renewal of ID/RC Assessments and IPCs and Requirements for Revised IPCs and Transfer IPCs (PDF), provide requirements and allowances.

If SPT meetings are not completed before Jan. 1, 2021 for plans that expire on Dec. 31, 2020, billing for services cannot occur before the date of the SPT meeting. This is because the renewal IPC effective date cannot be dated before the SPT meeting date.
