Group Day Backup Plan

Appendix C: Participant Services, C-1/C-3: Services Specification, Group Day Services, Service Definition, page 65

A back-up plan is not stated as a requirement Group Day Services. Individuals using the FIS Waiver could be living in their own home and required daily intensive supports. If a Group Day Services are closed due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances or the individual does not go to Group Day Services on a scheduled day or time, the individual may need to have a back-up plan in place to ensure they receive needed supports.

RECOMMENDATION:  Clarify that a plan for Group Day Services should include a back-up plan.
