ODP Announcement 20-029:
Provider Tracking ISP Revisions
Updated: March 24, 2020
All Residential Providers (ID/A), Supports Coordination Organizations, Administrative
To provide details of a HCSIS Auto-Authorization for Residential
The Office of Developmental Programs (ODP) is developing a solution to avoid manual
Individual Support Plan (ISP) critical revisions necessary due to the closures of facilities
providing Community Participation Supports. A “one-time automated unit
authorization” in Home and Community Services Information System (HCSIS) is being
scheduled that will impact all ISPs with Residential Habilitation with Day Supports
services. The auto-authorization will add Residential Habilitation without Day Supports
on all authorized ISPs with an active authorization for Residential Habilitation with Day
In addition, if an ISP already has Residential Habilitation without Day Supports
authorized, additional units will be auto authorized on the ISP, not to exceed 365 days.
The date segment on the ISP for this service will begin on 3/11/2020 for new Residential
Habilitation without Day Supports service segments added as a result of this auto
update. This auto-authorization is scheduled to run once and cannot occur if an ISP is
in draft status. Please ensure ISPs anticipated to be impacted that are in draft status
are deleted or authorized before the auto update. This HCSIS protocol is anticipated to
be enacted at the end of this week.
ODP is recommending SCOs and AEs suspend activities associated with critical revisions
related to Residential Habilitation when related to "without" day supports and ensure residential plans are not in draft status. Questions should be directed to your respective
ODP Regional Office.
