When to Prepare
Form 3050 is completed by the DAHS facility nurse for DAHS applicants/individuals/members:
- who need initial prior approval;
- who transfer from one facility to another;
- when the licensed nurse determines an individual needs a new service plan developed; or
- for an individual whose nursing services needs have been changed to reflect supplemental physician’s orders so long as the form remains legible.
Number of Copies
Prepare an original and one copy of Form 3050.
Send one copy to the HHSC regional nurse or managed care organization (MCO) when requesting prior approval of DAHS.
For ongoing services, the provider keeps Form 3050 for the duration of services to the individual/member.
